中文摘要

The objective of the study was to determine whether the individual and society behavior pattern of adult mallard (Anas platyrhyncos) would be changed under different environmental weather. Fifteen male and female adult mallard were used for the trial. The trial was divided into sunny day and rainy day, two treatment groups, 24 hours behavior observation was conducted, 4 days continuously for each kind of weather. The pond was divided into 8 areas, which were: rock area in the central of the pond, pond area, wooden floor with tree shedding area, nest box area, outside nest box area, feeding area, the land area next to the road and the land area next to the observant. A few observant would record the mallards in the different areas and their behavior, the behavior parameters including eating, drinking, defecating, sleeping, standing, lying, moving, stand still, swimming, grooming, water bathing, spreading wings, courting, fighting, wagging, getting food from fast suckling water, etc., record was made every minute. The results indicated that ducks had more discharge, move, stand still, swimming, wallowing, and aggressive behavior (P<0.05), but less sleep and stand behavior in sunshine days than in raining days. Male ducks had more discharge, stand, stand still, grooming, aggressive, tail wagging, and getting food from fast suckling water than female ducks (P<0.05). Mallard behavior in different areas had difference significantly (P<0.01).
