Abstract
<jats:p>This study analysed the preferences of perch size and position in the aviary in a group of 6 lorikeets (<jats:italic>Loriculus galgulus</jats:italic>). We monitored the presence of the lorikeets in four different locations in the aviary – on the original perches, floor, wire mesh and experimental perches. The perch preferences were tested using 3 identical experimental perches, each of which consisted of 5 segments differing in diameter – ø 1 cm (circumference = 3.14 cm), ø 2 cm (circumference = 6.28 cm), ø 3 cm (circumference = 9.42 cm), ø 4 cm (circumference = 12.56 cm) and ø 5 cm (circumference = 15.7 cm). The distance between the 3<jats:sup>rd</jats:...
