Impacts of ambient temperature and clutch size on incubation behaviour onset in a female-only incubator songbird

David Diez-Méndez, Juan José Sanz & Emilio Barba
Ambient temperature is assumed to be the major cue used by passerines to synchronize their laying and hatching dates to the expected peak of prey availability. While laying eggs, females are still able to fine-tune their hatching date following increasing or decreasing patterns of ambient temperature, mostly via changes in incubation onset. The onset of incubation behaviour in relation to the laying sequence could have later consequences for the duration of the incubation period and...
