This master thesis is covered within the Species Action Plan of the Yellowhammer Emberiza citrinella, commissioned and financed by the province of West Flanders. The academic framework was provided by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). Our research focussed on the use of winter food plots by the Yellowhammer Emberiza citrinella, a bunting that is listed as “threatened” on the Red List of Flemish Breeding Birds. Refinement of our knowledge about this seed-eating farmland bird will contribute to a more efficient approach of future conservational measures.
