Size and structure of birds’ nests can arise from evolutionary trade-offs between benefits, such as insulation from unfavourable conditions, maintenance of eggs or chicks, security against predation, and costs, such as energy spent in construction of the nest and the risk of predation in more visible nests. The relationships between nest characteristics and breeding success and survival probabilities of Eurasian magpie (Pica pica) eggs and nestlings were studied in Baghbadaran, central Iran… Expand

NEST SITE SELECTION OF EURASIAN MAGPIE (PICA PICA) IN PHRUMSENGLA NATIONAL PARK
A total of ninety two nests of Eurasian Magpie (Pica pica) were recorded from the four study sites within elevation range of 2897m to 3411m. Ura Dozhi has the highest frequency of nest recorded (75%,Expand

FUNCTIONAL SIGNIFICANCE OF NEST SIZE VARIATION IN THE RUFOUS BUSH ROBIN CERCOTRICHAS GALACTOTES
TLDR
Nest building behaviour in the Rufous Bush Robin can be considered a post-mating sexual display that reflects the willingness of males to invest in parental care and allows females to adjusts their reproductive effort accordingly. Expand
Reduced immunocompetence of nestlings in replacement clutches of the European magpie (Pica pica)
TLDR
An inverse relationship between immune responsiveness and breeding date is demonstrated, and reduced recruitment probability of late nestlings may be a direct consequence of their inability to cope with parasites. Expand
The different roles of the roof density and nest size in the Iberian magpie nest
TLDR
It is suggested that nest size is a predictor of parental quality as has been previously demonstrated, while roof structure (roof density) is related to predation risk. Expand
Nest-building activity and laying date influence female reproductive investment in magpies: an experimental study
TLDR
This work investigated whether female magpies, Pica pica, use nest-building activity rather than nest size to adjust their reproductive effort during replacement breeding attempts and found support for the hypothesized trade-off between clutch size and egg size in magPies. Expand
On the evolution of clutch size and nest size in passerine birds
TLDR
The hypothesis that the clutch size of some altricial birds may be limited by over-crowding of the nestlings in the nest, by comparing data on different species of European passerines, is examined. Expand
Differential maternal investment counteracts for late breeding in magpies Pica pica: an experimental study
TLDR
Results indicate that high quality pairs trade-off clutch size for larger eggs in replacement clutches, which could help magpie pairs to partly compensate for poorer environmental conditions associated with a delayed breeding attempt. Expand
Nest size affects clutch size and the start of incubation in magpies: an experimental study
TLDR
Nest size is hypothesized to inform females about a male’s willingness to invest in reproduction, and it is found that in brood of experimentally reduced nests, females started to incubate earlier in the laying sequence than they did in broods of control or enlarged nests. Expand
Does the great spotted cuckoo choose magpie hosts according to their parenting ability?
TLDR
The probability of survival of the parasite chicks increased if cuckoo eggs were laid in the nests of high-quality hosts originally chosen by the parasite. Expand
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES FOR MODELING AVIAN NEST SURVIVAL
TLDR
The nest survival model now available in the program MARK is introduced and its use is demonstrated on a nesting study of Mountain Plovers (Charadrius montanus Townsend) in Montana, USA. Expand
Nest building, sexual selection and parental investment
TLDR
The ‘good parent’ process is tested in a scenario where nest size is a sexually selected trait and it is predicted that individuals with more extreme displays (larger nests) might obtain benefits in terms of either parental investment or differential parental investment by the partner. Expand
