Summary
57 artificially hatched and brooded pheasants and 60 pheasants, brooded by fostering hens were equipped with a radio necklace tag or a poncho tag and localised two-three times a week after their release in the wild. The survival rates of the brooded-by-hen pheasants showed an improvement of survival rate, either poncho or radio tagged, 90.0% vs. 57.1% and 35.0% vs. 21.1%, respectively. The adoption of the technique of mother fostering, applied to the artificially hatched pheasants, can further increase the survival rates of the captive reared pheasants. We also product a GIS Tool to evaluate the habitat preferences of the animals.
