Data from: Surprising flexibility in parental care revealed by experimental changes in offspring demand

Katherine Pelletier, Chelsey Oedewaldt & David F. Westneat
Parental behaviour often exhibits plasticity to factors expected to affect the benefits or costs of care. For example, parent songbirds typically increase their provisioning behaviour as nestlings mature. Several mechanisms exist that could allow parents to track nestling age and provide appropriate care. We performed a short-term experiment on house sparrows, Passer domesticus, in which offspring of different ages were exchanged to assess the level of flexibility parents exhibit and the likely cues they use....
