Abstract:In order to explore the impact factors of nest site selection of Tachybaptus ruficollis in alpine wetland ecosystem, surveys were carried out on nest sites and food of T. ruficollis in Caohai National Nature Reserve, Guizhou Province, from April 29 to May 6 of 2013 and 2015. The area was divided into plot A and plot B, which included nest patches and control patches. Taking nest as center, the environmental factors of nest plot (1 m×1 m) and control plot were recorded and compared. The results showed that the height of the tallest plant and their distance to the bank in nest plot were significant higher than those in control plot. Principal component analysis on 14 habitat factors showed that T. ruficollis preferred to nest in small patches with high, sparse and few low stem plants. More nests presented in the area with abundant food. These results had practical significance on the conservation of T. ruficollis, and also provided basic information for the study of avian nest site selection in alpine wetland ecosystem.
