Record #135571:

Comparative behaviour of sympatric moulting populations of Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) and King Eider (S. spectabilis) in central West Greenland / Ole Frimer.

Title: Comparative behaviour of sympatric moulting populations of Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) and King Eider (S. spectabilis) in central West Greenland / Ole Frimer.
Author(s): Frimer, Ole.
Date: 1995.
In: Wildfowl. (1995.), Vol. 46 (1995)
Abstract: Activity budgets and distribution patterns at Disko Island were compared. Daily pattern was essentially similar, but Common Eider foraged near rocky shore at less than 15 m, while King Eider foraged mainly on silt bottom at 15-25 m. Former dabbled much more. Total food overlap is estimated at less than 16%. Some adaptations to feeding habitats are discussed.
Notes:

Wildfowl. Vol. 46 :129-139 (1995).

Keywords: 591.531 -- Dietary preferences.
598.412 -- Anseres: Somateria.
