Supplemental feeding is a common anthropogenic influence on wildlife which, dependent on natural food availability, can have positive or negative effects on physiological condition. Animals may respond negatively to supplemental feeding if the artificial food source increases disease risk due to aggregation. We manipulated supplemental food availability in a wild population of Eastern bluebirds, Sialia sialis, to examine the influence on physiological metrics and nesting success without causing birds to aggregate to access food.
