Dispersal and Site Fidelity

Dispersal is observed in both breeding adults and fledglings, which undertake natal dispersal. Sex biased dispersal is present, with females (especially fledgling females) dispersing further than males (12).

Migration Overview

Mostly resident. Undertakes erratic and rather limited seasonal altitudinal movements. Sporadic presence in Hong Kong (where it has bred), but these birds may be of captive origin.
