Abstract:

The diet of nestling Eurasian Nuthatches (Sitta europaea) was studied in the Magadan region of northeastern Siberia in 1987-1990. The number of prey items in a load and mass of a load did not vary significantly among years and broods. Mass of a load was positively related to the number of food items in a load. Plecoptera, Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera and Arachnoidea comprised the majority of nestling food both in frequency (76.6%) and in mass (83.2%). Almost all food types varied among years, but only a few prey types varied significantly. Arachnoidea were represented in nestling diet most evenly among all years of study. Individual variation in food types among broods was low with only one or two prey types varying significantly during each year. The seeds of the Japanese stone pine found in the diet of nestling nuthatches suggest that nuthatches could have been using caches made at least seven mo previously. /// De 1987-1990 se estudió la dieta de pichones de Sitta europaea en la región Magadan del noreste de Siberia. El número de presas en un cargamento y la masa de las presas no variaron significativamente entre las diferentes camadas y los diferentes años de estudio. La masa de alimento se relaciono positivamente con el número de artículos alimenticios en cada carga. Plecoptera, Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera y Arachnoidea representaron la mayoría del alimento a los pichones tanto en frecuencia (76.6%) como en masa (83.2%). El tipo de alimento varió a través de los años, pero tan solo algunas presas en particular variaron significativamente. Los arácnidos estuvieron uniformemente presente a través de todos los años de estudio. La variación individual en tipo de alimento entre las camadas fue poca con tan solo uno o dos tipos de presa que variaron significativamente durante cada año. Las semillas del pino japonés encontradas en la dieta de los pichones sugiere que los adultos muy bien pudieran estar utilizando el alimento obtenido meses antes.
