Title Honeyguide location data
Downloaded 5 times
Description Column descriptions: BirdID: unique identifier for each radio-tracked honeyguide individual. Sex: the honeyguide's sex (Male/Female). Age: the honeyguide's age category when captured for radio-tagging (Adult/Immature). Mass: the honeyguide's body mass when captured for radio-tagging (g). Date: date of location (dd/mm/yy). Time: time of location (hh:mm). Latitude: latitude of location (d.ddddd). Longitude: longitude of location (d.ddddd). Source: type of location data (Capture/Telemetry/Resighting/Camera trap).

Title Success of honeyguide-human interactions
Downloaded 5 times
Description Column descriptions: GuidingEventID: unique identifier for each guiding event, defined as a bout of guiding by an individual honeyguide. Success: whether or not the guiding event led to a bees' nest being found by the human followers (yes/no). Nests: how many bees' nests were found. BeeSpecies: the bee species to which the nest(s) belonged (sometimes >1 if >1 nest was found). Notes: (1) Guiding events accompanied by a non-natural acoustic cue, and guiding events that led to a bees' nest already known to the observers, are excluded (see Materials and Methods). (2) "Stingless bee sp." refers to an unidentified species; see Materials and Methods.

Title Bees' nests found
Downloaded 8 times
Description Column descriptions: Date: date on which the bees' nests was found (dd/mm/yy). Latitude: latitude of the bees' nest (d.ddddd). Longitude: longitude of the bees' nest (d.ddddd). Honeyguide: whether the nest was found with the help of a honeyguide (Yes) or without the help of a honeyguide (No). BeeSpecies: the bee species to which the nest belonged. Note: "Stingless bee sp." refers to an unidentified species; see Materials and Methods.

Title Distance travelled to bees' nests shown by a honeyguide
Downloaded 3 times
Description Column descriptions: GuidingEventID: unique identifier for each guiding event, defined as a bout of guiding by an individual honeyguide. Start_Latitude: latitude of point where the honeyguide was detected starting guiding behaviour (d.ddddd). Start_Longitude: longitude of point where the honeyguide was detected starting guiding behaviour (d.ddddd). Bees_Latitude: latitude of bees' nest (d.ddddd). Bees_Longitude: longitude of bees' nest (d.ddddd). Distance: distance from point where the honeyguide was detected starting guiding behaviour, to bees' nest (m). Note: Guiding events sometimes led to more than one bees’ nest, but only the journey to the first bees' nest was analysed here.

Title Honeyguide initial flight direction relative to bees' nest direction
Downloaded 3 times
Description Column descriptions: GuidingEventID: unique identifier for each guiding event, defined as a bout of guiding by an individual honeyguide, sometimes to more than one bees’ nest. Bearing_Bees: bearing (angle in degrees) from the point where the honeyguide was detected starting guiding behaviour, to the bees' nest. Bearing_40m: bearing (angle in degrees) from the point where the honeyguide was detected starting guiding behaviour, to the point reached after the first 40 m of travel. Bearing_Difference: Bearing_40m relative to Bearing_Bees, with the latter set at zero (angle in degrees). Note: Guiding events accompanied by a non-natural acoustic cue, and guiding events that led to a bees' nest already known to the observers, are excluded (see Materials and Methods).

Title Experimental honey-hunting forays
Downloaded 6 times
Description Column descriptions: TransectID: unique identifier for each transect. Latitude: latitude of transect start point (d.ddddd). Longitude: longitude of transect start point (d.ddddd). Date: date on which the transect took place (dd/mm/yy). Time: time at which the transect started (hh:mm). AM/PM: whether the transect took place in the morning (AM) or afternoon (PM). Time_Sun: time at which the transect start measured in minutes from sunrise for morning transects, or to sunset for afternoon transects (h.hh). Temperature: measured at end of transect (degrees Celsius). Treatment: acoustic playback treatment type. Treatment_subtype: playback subtype for control playbacks. ExemplarID: unique identifier for each individual person or bird recorded as an exemplar. ExemplarMax30: maximum amplitude of playback exemplar recorded at 30 metres (dBA). ExemplarMean30: mean amplitude of playback exemplar recorded at 30 metres (dBA). ExemplarLength: length of playback exemplar (s.ss). Guided: whether a honeyguide initiated guiding behaviour (Yes/No). Bees: whether a bees' nest was found with a honeyguide's help (Yes/No). Distance_searched: linear distance from the point where the honeyguide was detected starting guiding behaviour, to the point where either bees' nest found or honey-hunters decided to stop searching (m).
