Demography and Populations

Young birds may stay near the adults in a clan-like society for up to 6 months (for females, the dispersing sex) or longer (for males, which often breed locally) (Willis 1973). There is no further information related to topics such as age at first breeding, life span and survivorship, or population regulation.
