Abstract

We used the focal sampling method to conduct a behavioural study of the endemic Ethiopian Bush-crow Zavattariornis stresemanni in the Yabelo-Mega area of southern Ethiopia. We found that feeding rates were lower in areas with low sward height and low numbers of trees. This was particularly concerning given the degradation of natural habitat in this area.
