Foraging habitat selection by yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella) nesting in agriculturally contrasting regions in lowland England

Fine-scale habitat use by yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella), searching for food to provision nestlings was compared in three agriculturally contrasting regions of lowland England. Log-linear modelli...

Habitat and weather are weak correlates of nestling condition and growth rates of four UK farmland passerines

Agricultural intensification is believed to have driven declines of farmland bird populations and the invertebrates and weeds on which they feed. We investigated whether habitat and weather, as surrog...
