Studies on habits activities food and reproduction of the blue eared pheasant crossoptilon auritum



Studies on habits activities food and reproduction of the blue eared pheasant crossoptilon auritum



Acta Zoologica Sinica 29(1): 71-85



Ecological studies of the blue-eared pheasant (C. auritum) were made. Field work on the blue-eared pheasant in 1973-1974 in Jianza Mian, Qinghai province [China] was carried out at an altitude of 2700-3800 m. The habitat of blue-eared pheasants is of four types: Picea asperata forest; mixed forest composed of Populus davidiana and Betula sp.; Rhododendron capitatum shrubs; and alpine meadow. The seasonal variations of their numbers and food are presented. From the end of April to the beginning of May, the blue-eared pheasant began to breed. Nests and eggs are described in the Chinese text. The growth of nestlings was studied in each 10-day period using body weight and measurements of the beak, wing, tarsus and tail. Their growth rate may be calculated by: .**GRAPHIC**. The length-weight relationship may be expressed in the formula .**GRAPHIC**. = 0.007188L1.8173 .**GRAPHIC**. = 0.007197L1.7969.
