Observation on the Behavior of Captive Sclater's Monal

Abstract: We used methods of scan sampling and all-occurrence sampling to observed a pair of captive Sclaters Monal (Lophophorus scalteri).The observation lasted o ne year and 43 days to be carried for collecting data,then 25 800 data to be g ained.The results shows the captive birds daily rhythm had peak in morning and evening.The time proportion of various behaviors of the pheasant had significant different in different month.The years data indicated the time budgets of the birds were:resting 39.88%,feeding 23.57%,watching 14.02%,moving 10.36%,body caring 8.08%,and others 4.09%.It is obvious that resting and feeding were the most important activities of Sclaters Monal in captivity.The birds time budgets were difference in different seasons.The time budgets are not obviously different between the cock and hen.Maybe this was due to the low frequency of propagation activity.We saw only one integrated mating process during the obs ervation.Another 2 courtship display of the cock stopped on midway with no relat ively responses from hen.
