Aggregation of Red Jungle Fowl Gallus gallus on a road in Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park, Myanmar
- The size and composition of flocks of Red Jungle Fowl Gallus gallus were recorded during spontaneous observation on a road in Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park, Myanmar in the middle of the dry season in 2007. The flocks observed on the 1,600 m section of the road consisted of four mixed sex groups, two female only groups, five solitary males. The average flock size was 2.2 birds if solitary males were included. The overall sex ratio was 1:1.2 which showed no bias from evenness. The population density in the road side secondary forest was tentatively estimated to be 0.8 birds/ha, making it one of the highest densities reported so far.
