Abstract

This site contains data files and model code for a dynamic nesting territory occupance model and 2-sex integrated population model for Cooper's hawks in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, 2011 - 2020.

Methods

Data were collected from 2011 - 2020. Data include annual counts of occupied nesting territories, capture histories of individual Cooper's hawks wearing bands or tracking devices, counts of fledged young in broods, and the age of breeding adults on each nesting territory. Data were collected via multiple visits to each nesting territory each year.

Usage Notes

All data processing was done in Program R. The occupancy model and integrated population model are coded in JAGS and run in R with freely available R packages.
