Project Title: Bird brains? Understanding how individual cognitive performance relates to movement ecology, in pheasants
Supervisors: Dr Joah Madden
Funding Body: ERC
My project investigates how the movement behaviour and ecology of released pheasants is related to their general cognitive performance. I look at a range of movement behaviours from dispersal and association patterns in the wild, down to fine-scale movement decisions made by birds in captive conditions.
