Dispersal behavior

The first year of life, when many animal species are searching for suitable habitats and reproductive partners, is one of the most critical phases in their life history and particularly interesting for many aspects in evolution, ecology and environmental protection. Especially for smaller and highly mobile species, like the Common blackbird, these dispersal processes within the first year of life are still largely unknown. In this ongoing study, we investigate to what extent migrant and resident individuals differ in their dispersal strategies and habitat choice.
