Abstract

Clutch size, number of hatched eggs and fledged young were density-independent. Flycatchers laid more eggs when the caterpillar supply was high. Reproductive success (hatching, fledging and breeding success) was density-dependent. Bad weather, especially in early spring, significantly reduced reproductive success. Flycatchers laying large clutches tended to produce smaller young at high population density. -from Authors
