Abstract

Tarboton, W. R. 1976. Aspects of the biology of Jvnx ruficollis. Ostrich 47:99-112. A colour-marked population of Jynx ruficollb was studied for 15 months and data on territoriality. reproduction, diet, moult and roosting behaviour are presented. These data are compared with equivalent data published for its Palaearctic congener Jynx torqailla and the two species are found to show little divergence.
