—We monitored 124 female Goldencheeked Warblers (Dendroica chrysoparia) at 133 nests with video cameras from 1997–2002 and 2005– 2006 at two study areas in central Texas, USA.

Daily nest survival was 0.971 (95% CI: 0.959–0.980) and daily adult female predation while nesting was 0.008 (95% CI: 0.003–0.017). We estimated that 14.6% of… CONTINUE READING
