Using an ethogram as a guide to understanding Hooded Vulture breeding behaviour

Using an ethogram as a guide to understanding Hooded Vulture breeding behaviour

Studies on an animal’s behaviour can be enhanced using an ‘ethogram’. An ethogram clearly defines, describes, and classifies distinct behaviours commonly exhibited by a species. Researchers from the Endangered Wildlife Trust and the University of KwaZulu-Natal recently produced the first ethogram describing the nesting and breeding behaviours of the Critically Endangered Hooded Vulture (Necrosyrtes monachus).
