The use of nestboxes to study secondary cavity nesting avian species has greatly improved the knowledge related to many fields of environmental sciences. The aim of this study has been to compare the breeding performance of Great Tits (Parus major) and Blue Tits (Cyanistes caeruleus) in two types of nestboxes that differ with regard to their shape and thermal properties. Both nestbox types were placed in the same area to avoid confounding factors. There were significant differences between the… CONTINUE READING
