Are most bird species monogamous?



  1. 0 Votes

    Yes. About 90% of all bird species are estimated to be monogamous. Monogamy in relation to birds is defined as a “pair bond” between a male and a female.  These pair bonds can last as short as one breeding or as long as for life, as the case of swans, owls, and eagles.

    Many birds are monogamous, but also, there are species where one male will have several females or a female will mate with several males. In some species more than one mating system is exhibited within a season or across the lifetime of the bird. However, birds like swans will mate with only one other bird. If that bird dies, they do not mate again.
