Abstract:During March to October, 2014 and March – September, 2015, we observed the breeding populations of Painted Snipe (Rostratula benghalensis) in Nanchong, Sichuan province with both instant scanning sampling method and behavior sampling method.. A total of 11 kinds of postures, 46 acts, 9 surrounding habitats and other 83 behaviors which belong to 12 categories were recorded and distinguished to build behaviors ethogram and PAE (posture-act-environment) coding system of Painted Snipe during breeding period. The behavior characteristics we found based on the PAE were consistent with previous studies. Besides, we described acts, behaviors of Painted Snipe, and the relationship between behaviors and environments in details. The results show that there are significant differences between the behaviors of males and females. Nestlings displayed simple behaviors with obvious characteristic. Moreover, the same act and behavior in different time or different individuals may reflect diverse behavior function
