Abstract:

Nestlings' condition parameters (body weight, tarsus and wing length) of Starling breeding in nest-boxes of various sizes were studied during two years. Two types of nest-boxes were used: normal - typical for that species, (bottom size 195 cm2, depth 22 cm) and 20-25% smaller. It was found that Starling didn't adjust their clutches to nest-box size. Also number of fledgelings was not related to nest-box size. Significant differences between nestling development in normal and smaller nest-boxes were found only during the first days of life, when nestling growth is intensive. In older stages of nestlings development those diferences dissappeared.
