The Importance of Social Bonds in a Wild Bird Society
by Dr. Josh Firth
Please note that this talk is a change from that advertised in the Programme. Social behaviour is an almost ubiquitous aspect of all animal life. Through tracking the winter activity and movement of thousands of individual tits at Wytham Woods in Oxford, we are now able to study the social interactions within a wild bird community at an unprecedented scale. This talk looks at this data along with new experiments to assess, which factors shape the social structure and examine how social bonds between birds influence processes such as the flow of information about food, choice of nest site and who they choose to breed with.
