A functional analysis of courtship feeding in the red-billed gull, Larus novaehollandiae scopulinus



A functional analysis of courtship feeding in the red-billed gull, Larus novaehollandiae scopulinus



Behaviour, 774: 222-241



The courtship behaviour of red-billed gulls (Larus novaehollandiae scopulinus) was observed in a breeding colony at Kaikoura, New Zealand, from 14 November to 30 December 1967, 1 August to 30 November 1968, and 22 September to 30 October 1973, to examine the functional aspects of courtship feeding of the female by the male.
