Title
The quality of pied flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) and great tit (Parus major) females in an air pollution gradient
Author(s): Eeva, T., Lehikoinen, E. & Sunell, C. 1997
Abstract: We studied whether pied flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) and great tit (Parus major) females differed in quality between polluted and unpolluted habitats. Comparing female condition between incubation and nestling periods, we aimed at testing whether ..[more]..

Title
Do parasitic mites decrease growth of nestling Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca?
Author(s): Bauchau V.
Abstract: The effect of a parasitic mite Dermanyssus hirundinis on the growth and survival of nestling Pied Flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca was tested by an experiment where the parasite level was reduced in half of the nest boxes using an insecticide, Although ..[more]..

Title
Parental care in Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca: Energy expenditure in relation to plumage colour and mating status
Author(s): Saetre G.P., Slagsvold T., Kruszewicz A. & Viljugrein H.
Abstract: Females may benefit from expending more resources in care of offspring sired by sexually attractive males than by those of unattractive males in species with biparental care. Attractive males may therefore reduce their share of parental expenditure t..[more]..

Title
Mass loss in female Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca during late incubation: Supplementation fails to support the reproductive stress hypothesis.
Author(s): Slagsvold T. & Johansen M.A.
Abstract: In most species of altricial birds, females experience great changes in body mass during the reproductive period. Mass loss of females after hatching of the young has commonly been regarded as a result of increased reproductive stress. Alternatively,..[more]..

Effect of habitat and latitude on nestling diet of Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca.
Author(s): Sanz J.J.
Abstract: Composition and diversity of the nestling diet of Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca was compared among 17 European study areas that differed in habitat type (deciduous or coniferous forest). The most abundant foods were butterflies and moths (Lepid..[more]..

Title
Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca travelling from Africa to breed in Europe: differential effects of winter and migration conditions on breeding date
Author(s): Both C., Sanz J.J., et al.
Abstract: In most bird species there is only a short time window available for optimal breeding due to variation in ecological conditions in a seasonal environment. Long-distance migrants must travel before they start breeding, and conditions at the wintering ..[more]..

Title
A trade-off between two resource-demanding functions: post-nuptial moult and immunity during reproduction in male pied flycatchers
Author(s): Juan José Sanz, Juan Moreno, Santiago Merino and Gustavo Tomás
Abstract: Costs of reproduction might be mediated by a resource-allocation trade-off between immunity and reproductive effort. Recent studies have suggested that the moult-breeding overlap observed mainly in males may affect this trade-off. In order to test wh..[more]..

Title
Environmental, genetic and maternal components of immunocompetence of nestling pied flycatchers from a cross-fostering study
Author(s): Juan José Soler
Abstract: Genetic, environmental and maternal effects can all affect the phenotypic expression of a trait. Through cross-fostering experiments in nesting birds, variation due to genetic and environmental effects can be partitioned and identified as being due..[more]..

From mating to laying: genetic and environmental variation in mating dates and prelaying periods of female pied flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca
Author(s): Potti, J. 1999
Abstract: The duration of the period comprised between mating and the onset of laying and its correlates and consequences for aspects of female breeding performance are investigated in a population of pied flycatchers studied for 5 years. That duration may rep..[more]..

Provisioning response to manipulation of apparent predation danger by parental Pied Flycatchers
Author(s): Hakkarainen, H., Yli-Tuomi, I., Korpimäki, E. & Ydenberg, R. 2002
Abstract: We tested whether nest visitation rate of parent pied Flycatch ers (Ficedula hypoleuca) is decreased by an experimentally increased predation risk. We simulated predation risk by placing a stuffed Pygmy Owl (Glaucidium passerinzm) in the nest vicinit..[more]..

Niche partitioning of two Palearctic passerine migrants with Afrotropical residents in their West African winter quarters

Abstract: In bird migration systems, the question of coexistence and competition of migrants with residents in the nonbreeding season and their role in shaping the evolution of present avian communities is much debated. However, conclusions are often drawn in..[more]..

Title
Effect of Food Availability on Incubation Period in the Pied Flycatcher
Author(s): Juan Jose Sanz
Abstract: Incubation maybe stressful because it restricts time for foraging (Walsberg 1983, Murphy and Haukioja 1986). Many bird species in which the females incubate alone, females obtain part of their food from their mates (e.g. Lack 1968, Ricklefs 1974, Lyo..[more]..
