Vegetative cover types (macrohabitats) were used by Oreortyx pictus in proportion to availability. Significant microhabitat variables which distinguished used from available microhabitat structure included proximity to water and tall, dense shrubs. Population densities ranged from 9-30 birds per 100 ha; populations with greater densities used a larger range of the available microhabitat structure. -Authors
