Title Nesting parasites, laying sequences
Downloaded 29 times
Description Egg-laying sequence of 14 females that laid eggs in one or more other nests before laying and starting incubation in her own nest. Eggs that she laid in other nests are represented by numbers; ® represents eggs that she laid in her own nest. For instance, female 2 started on 28 April by laying an egg in another nest (1), 3 days later laying another egg in the same nest (1). Two days later she laid an egg in a second nest (2) etc., until she on 18 May laid an egg in her own nest, then continuing with 7 more eggs in her own nest, the last of which she laid 30 May. Figure 4 is a simplified summary of these results, omitting non-laying days.

Title Timing data, laying parasites
Downloaded 20 times
Description Average time (days) spent in the nest before incubation start, for the eggs of 13 females that laid eggs parasitically before laying in their own nest (laying parasites, see Fig. 5). For each female, “Observed time” is the average time her eggs spent in a nest before incubation start. “One-nest time” is the corresponding average time per egg, if the female had instead laid all her eggs in one nest, with the same timing between her successive eggs. These data were used for the regression analysis described in the paper (Fig. 5).
