Water-site selection and behaviour of red-legged partridgeAlectoris rufaevaluated using camera trapping

Publication year: 2012 Source: Applied Animal Behaviour Science, Available online 9 February 2012 Carlos Sánchez-García, José A. Armenteros, Marta E. Alonso, Randy T. Larsen, Juan M. Lomillos, … This paper explores watering patterns of wild red-legged partridges at water troughs (WT) during three consecutive summers on a farm-land area of Spain where drought periods are frequent. Camera trapping was used in order to assess climatic effects on weekly and daily watering patterns, investigate the influence of shrub cover on water-site selection, evaluate behavioural patterns displayed when using WT, and describe age and number of birds observed at WT
