Abstract:The nest-site selection of twite (Carduelis flavirostris) was investigated and studied by quadrate sampling and direct observation method in Lhasa urban area from March to June in 2015. A total of 32 nests were collected, and 93.75% of which were set on macrophanerophytes, with 65.63% were on the Cedrus deodara, 12.50% on Platycladus orientalis, 12.50% on Picea crassifolia, 3.13% on Salix babylonica, and 6.25% on bush of Prunus cerasifera. The nests of twite were mainly set at the junction of the trunk and lateral branches, and most of the nests were on the south part of nesting trees, which accounted for 40.6%, while 28.1% were on the east part. By principal component analysis, it was found that the main environmental factors which affected C. flavirostris's nest-site selection included nest tree species, nest tree height, nest tree diameter at breast height, the coverage of woody plants, the distance between nest tree to water and road, the distance from nest to the trunk of nest tree and nest direction.
