Environmental conditions but not nest composition affect reproductive success in an urban bird

Pablo Capilla-Lasheras, Blanca Bondía & Jose Ignacio Aguirre
Birds can influence the environmental conditions that eggs and offspring experience by adjusting the composition of their nests. They often use feathers to build nests, presumably due to their insulating properties. The amount of feathers in nests is often associated with increased nestling survival and body condition.
