We investigated the underlying processes affecting bird population dynamics by collection and analysis of demographic data from 3 sites on the Yukon Kuskokwim (1991-2004) for 29 site-years. We examined variation in components of reproduction, tested hypotheses about the influence of specific ecological factors on life-history variables, and investigated their relative contributions to local population dynamics.
