In a study area in south Scotland, Sparrowhawks did not occupy the available nesting places at random, but more often used those places where breeding success was highest (here called high-grade places). Most birds stayed on particular nesting places for only one year, but others stayed up to 8 years. Some birds moved from low- to high-grade places as they aged. Continued occupancy of certain places was thus produced by many different individuals occupying such places in rapid succession, but… CONTINUE READING
