Abstract
The study population of the Aquatic Warbler showed a low proportion of unfertile eggs (8.6 %), very low nest losses (17.9 %), including loss es from predation (11.1 %), and high average production of fledglings per nest (3.25 +/-1.9) compared with populations of its congeners and other related species. As adult mortality also seems low, it is conclu ded that the main threat to this endangered species in the study area may be change of habitat.
