Data on bird nests
A dataset with 84 observations on the following 12 variables.
||Latin species name|
||Common species name|
||Page in a bird manual describing the species|
||Mean body length for the species (in cm)|
||Type of nest|
||Location of nest|
||Number of eggs|
||a numeric vector|
||Mean length of time (in days) the species incubates eggs in the nest|
||Mean length of time (in days) the species cares for babies in the nest until fledged|
||Total care time = Incubate+Nestling|
||1=closed nest (pendant, spherical, cavity, crevice, burrow), 0=open nest (saucer, cup)|
Amy R. Moore, as a student at Grinnell College in 1999, wanted to study the relationship between species characteristics and the type of nest a bird builds, using data collected from available sources. For the study, she collected data by species for 83 separate species of North American passerines.
