Abstract:Home ranges of Emei Shan Liocichla during non-breeding season (from January to February) and breeding season (from June to August) were studied using radio tracking technique in 2016 in Mount Emei and Laojunshan National Nature Reserve, Sichuan, China, respectively. The results show that, in non-breeding season, home-range estimates with Fixed Kernel (60%, 95%) were 2 542 m2±263 m2 and 9 659 m2±975 m2, while in breeding season 1 581 m2±1 362 m2 and 13 040 m2±6 003 m2, respectively. The percents of overlapping home ranges between individuals were largely over 50% in non-breeding season, and between the mates more than 70%. This phenomenon was probably linked to pairing, territorial behaviors and habitat quality. In addition, Emei Shan Liocichla exhibited obvious diurnal-movement rhythm. The female and male liocichlas had two (i.e. morning and evening) and three (i.e. morning, noon and evening) activity peaks, respectively.
