I had the privilege of seeing this duck species in Morocco.
Ecological analysis and patrimonial value of the breeding birds in the western Babors range in North-East Algeria: here.
“Information and Communication” cell of the Algerian National Association of Ornithology (ANAO) is planning to create a database of all scientific and explorations works made on birds of Algeria during all time (articles, thesis, magister dissertations, reports, data online on web…). This database, which will be organized along several search modes and available on the web, will set up a listing, the most comprehensive bibliography on birds of Algeria: here.

The Marbled Teal, Marmaronetta angustirostris, is a globally threatened species, especially in the Western Mediterranean. Its numbers are currently following a downward trend. The population size and status of the Marbled Teal are well estimated in some areas of its geographic range, but in others, such as Algerian wetlands, they are still not known. Population and time-activity budget estimation of the species were carried out in the semi-arid Ramsar wetland Garaet Timerganine located in north-east Algeria in the course of two subsequent wintering seasons. The wintering population showed a significant decrease in numbers from the first to the second year with peaks of 763 and 270 individuals, respectively. This variation was probably due…
