Data on visits to feeders were collected using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags fitted to each individual bird in our study population. Individual-level data (i.e. metal ring number, age) on the birds associated with each transponder ID were collected as part of the ongoing yearly monitoring of the study population during the breeding season. Social network metrics (i.e. degree) were obtained prior to main experiment data collection. Full information can be found in the Methods sections of the article.
There are four files associated with this dataset:
group_side choice_data.csv: datasheet including all records of visits to group-site feeders, with associated variables included in main article;
group_first visit times_data.csv: datasheet including the subset of first visits for feeder nest juveniles at group-site feeders, with relevant treatment variables given in the main article;
README.txt: details of all variables in the datasheets;
Franks et al. parents vs peers R code_final 241020.R: R code file for all analyses in the main article. Terms for the variables correspond to the column names in the datasheets.
