Abstract:
The grey partridge (Perdix perdix) and the common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) are typical representatives of the agricultural landscapes of Central Europe and share the same habitat as cultural follower. Due to factors such as the intensification of agriculture and the landscape degradation, their populations have declined significantly in recent decades. In the course of this work, the populations of the two species in Kronberg and Traunfeld, north-east of Vienna, were recorded by means of playback lures. The aim of the work was to determine the influence of the factors cultivation, field culture, diversity of field cultures, competition between this two bird species and presence of used fox dens on their habitat selection. In addition to the common pheasants and grey partridges, the cultivation form and the field culture growing on it were surveyed from all areas. Furthermore, all fox dens in the study area were counted. The resulting data were evaluated using Manly's Selectivity Index and generalized linear models. The results showed that grey partridges, in contrast to common pheasants, significantly preferred organically farmed areas and fallow land as a field crop. In addition, the number of grey partridges decreased with the presence of common pheasants and increased with the presence of fox dens. The common pheasant did not show any significant results.
