Table 1 Composition and distribution of Hooded Cranes in three habitats

From: The effects of food abundance and disturbance on foraging flock patterns of the wintering Hooded Crane (Grus monacha)

Total Family cranes Group cranes
Early stage Paddy fields 60.8 51.43 20.95 30.48
Meadows 28.8 27.62 10.48 17.14
Mudflats 10.4 20.98 7.62 13.33
Middle stage Paddy fields 70.8 50 12.22 37.78
Meadows 15 22.22 3.33 18.89

Late stage Paddy fields 4.5 13.58 7.41 6.17
Meadows 85.1 77.78 27.16 50.62
Mudflats 10.4 8.64 2.47 6.17
  1. The composition and distribution of Hooded Cranes are represented by the proportion of the number of individual birds and flocks of cranes at three habitats during the winter periods
