Reproduction and survival of radio marked hen ring necked pheasants phasianus colchicus in illinois usa



Reproduction and survival of radio marked hen ring necked pheasants phasianus colchicus in illinois usa



Journal of Wildlife Management 47(2): 369-375



Reproductive success and survival rates were determined for 26 radio-marked hen pheasants (P. colchicus) in east central Illinois during breeding seasons spanning 1972-1980. Reproductive success (during either incubation or brood-rearing) or survival beyond 3 mo. was unlikely for hens equipped with radio packages weighing .gtoreq. 27 g. Longevity declined exponentially as the ratio of package weight:body weight increased over a range of 2.3-3.3% for 15 hens radio-marked either prior to incubation or during brood-rearing. The radio-marked cohort experienced lower survival rates than normal hen pheasant populations, longevity decreased with increased radio-package weight and package weight should not exceed a minimum necessary to ensure battery life over the course of the intended study.
