Zachowanie samicy poklaskwy Saxicola rubetra po smierci partnera na drodze



Zachowanie samicy poklaskwy Saxicola rubetra po smierci partnera na drodze



Notatki Ornitologiczne 45(3): 200



On 21st June 2002, an anxious female Whinchat Saxicola rubetra, accompanied by fledglings, was observed near a dead male of the same species which had been killed on a road. In order to check the reaction of the female to her partner's death, the bird killed was moved ca 50 metres from the collision site and put on the road. The female flew up to a distance of several dozen centimetres from the dead male and started to fly around him. After a few minutes she settled on the roadside. Then, to avoid putting the female in danger of collision, the killed bird was removed from the road. This observation can indicate that killed birds remaining on roads are likely to attract other individuals. Presence of casualties can thus constitute a factor affecting the mortality of other birds. Removal of killed animals from roads seems to be one of the means to prevent birds dying at those places.
