Literally translated as the right of watching (birds), the ius auspicandi is a right held by certain magistrates and sacerdotes publici, to take the auspices. In that it is found to be attendant to praetors and consuls, yet absent from censors, one may conclude that is a component of holding imperium, though there is no explicit evidence to this.
