Description The data set is composed of one excel file with several data sheets. There is one sheet per experiment/study; 3 predator studies: Pygmy owl, Tengmalm's owl, weasel and "Suppl feeding" for food supplementation study. In addition there is one separate sheet with the data on progesterone concentration in the pygmy owl study in 2009, we have no data on the concentration for this hormone in previous years so it was analyzed separately. Finally, there are three sheets for the data on female condition: Female_pygmySites, Female_Tengmalm'sSites and Female_FeedingSites. The variables listed are: location (Forest patch and Nest Box in the predators files and Nest ID in the supplementary feeding experiment), year, predator (PO pygmy owl, TO Tengmalm's owl, W weasel), Treatment (there is a comment on the file itself explaining what we mean case by case, generally 0 correspond to control/unfed/low risk site and 1 correspond to treatment/fed/high risk site), Laying date, Clutch size, Yolk mass, Egg mass, Tngg (testosterone concentration), Anngg (A4 concentration), P4ngg (progesterone concentration). In addition, in the supplementary feeding file there are also the column "ExactEggOrder" (actual order in which each egg was laid) and "Laying order" (this is the variable used in the analyses, there is a comment on the file itself explaining what we mean case by case). In the female condition files mass, wing and female hematocrit are also presented.
