Use of Playback in Estimating Numbers of Bearded Tit Panurus biarmicus Outside the Breeding Season.

Bearded Tit (Panurus biarmicus) Science Article 1 abstract Although the European population of Bearded Tit Panurus biarmicus is largely sedentary, there have been only a few studies of Bearded Tits outside the breeding season. The camouflaging effect of their habitat (reedbeds) and their reduced vocal activity are the main difficulties presented during this time (Wawrzyniak […]

The effect of age and sex on wing morphology and body size of the Bearded Tit Panurus biarmicus in relation to complete moult

Bearded Tit (Panurus biarmicus) Science Article 6 abstract In sedentary birds, variation in wing morphology as a result of complete moult during the transition from juvenile to adult plumage is poorly understood. The aim of this study was to characterise sex- and age-related differences in wing morphology resulting from a complete post-juvenile moult in an […]

Repeatability of egg dimensions within the clutches of Bearded Tit Panurus biarmicus

Bearded Tit (Panurus biarmicus) Science Article 3 abstract The variation in size and shape of Bearded Tit eggs was investigated in the Wielkopolska Region of western Poland in 1988-1992 and 1997-2000. The mean clutch size was 5.47 (95% CL: 5.25-5.70, n = 99), and differed markedly from year to year. Coefficients of variations for the […]

Individual and temporal variation in cloacal protuberance size of male bearded tits (Panurus biarmicus)
