AbstractThe European turtle dove (Streptopelia turtur), is a seed-eating trans-Saharan migratory species, holding in Spain the most important part of the western European breeding population. Turtle doves have declined strongly in recent decades (including in Spain). Factors leading to decline include reduced survival and productivity due to degradation of key feeding and nesting habitats. There is, however, insufficient data on reproductive parameters and habitats in Spain, where the primary breeding habitat is a mixture of wooded areas and scrubland close to grassland or farmland areas. Based on data collected in 2018 and 2019 (including 32 nests in 2018), we present breeding success of turtle doves in two Spanish regions (Castilla la Mancha and Catalonia), and how this varies in relation to characteristics of the nesting habitat. We found nests to occur in both Pinus and Quercus trees. Breeding success increased with height from the ground to the nest, and also with distance from the nest to the main trunk in Quercus trees, but not in Pinus trees (which are, in general higher). We discuss implications for designing measures to improve productivity of this vulnerable species.
