Behaviour

There are many types of behaviour in birds that range in duration, type, purpose and frequency. In fact, practised bird watchers are aware that the two commonest activities you can observe in birds are feather care / grooming, and feeding/foraging. However, there are a number of other types of behaviour that are also common at certain times of the year or seasons e.g. courting, mating, nest building, song flights, flocking and migration.

Search EcoPort
This search facility allows you to search EcoPort directly without having to navigate the more detailed EcoPort menu. EcoPort contains record structures for all birds of the world, and can be searched on scientific or common name in any language (provided it has already been entered). As the bird entities in this knowledge system are relatively new, most records will consist of the scientific name, some taxonomic information, and at least one common name only. This facility can be used to search for any entity type in EcoPort e.g. plants, insects, fungi, bacteria, mammals, birds, and spiders.
