The breeding biology of the Willow Tit in Northeastern Siberia

Willow Tit (Parus montanus) Science Article 2 abstract The Magadan region of northeastern Siberia. Clutch size and number of fledglings averaged 7.5 and 6.5, respectively, and both were correlated negatively with the date of the first egg.

Hunger-dependency of hiding behaviour after a predator attack in dominant and subordinate Willow Tits.

Willow Tit (Parus montanus) Science Article 3 abstract We studied rank-specificity of predation risk taking in captive Willow Tits Parus montanus. Level of risk taking was expressed by duration of hiding after a simulated predator attack. By manipulating available food, we separated the effects of hunger and other rank associated factors on accepted predation risk. […]
