To survey the effect of touching eggs and nestlings during research activities upon breeding success, this study was carried out from 19 February to 24 June 2010 in Haft–Tappeh and Miyan–Ab agriculture complexes in the northern part of Khuzestan province, southwestern Iran. In the study period, 19 nests (14 touched and 5 untouched) of Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto, 11 nests (6 touched and 5 untouched) of Grey Hypocolius Hypocolius ampelinus, and 38 nests (29 touched and 9 untouched) of Common Babbler Turdoides caudatus were monitored at 3–day intervals. There was a significant difference between breeding success in the touched and untouched nests of Grey Hypocolius (P0.05) while in Common Babbler and Collared Dove there were not any significant effects (P>0.05). Among these species, Grey Hypocolius is determined as a susceptible species. Also in Grey Hypocolius, the stage before hatching was determined as a crisis stage in its reproductive period because touching of chicks did not cause any mortality in all the touched nests, while touching eggs caused some egg mortalities.

This survey was carried out at Sivand Dam in Fars Province, Iran, during six months from October 2009 to March 2010. In total, 46 species of waterbirds were identified at the dam. Of these, Eurasian Coot Fulica atra and Common Teal Anas crecca were the most abundant (71.7% and 11.5% of all birds counted, respectively). Five species currently included in the IUCN Red List categories, Dalmatian Pelican Pelecanus crispus (VU),White–headed Duck Oxyura leucocephala (EN), Marbled Teal Marmaronetta angustirostris (VU), Ferruginous Duck Aythya nyroca (NT) and Black–tailed Godwit Limosa limosa (NT), were observed at the dam. The survey has revealed that this artificial wetland is able to support significant numbers of waterbirds during periods of drought when many natural wetlands are in a critical condition. Further studies on the aquatic fauna of this dam and other artificial wetlands are recommended to complement the results of this preliminary study.
