  • They may excavate a new hole each year, creating habitat for other large cavity nesting birds.
  • There are two major hypotheses that attempt to explain variation in clutch size among cavity-nesting bird species.
  • This may come from other species of woodpecker, or other cavity nesting birds like swallows and starlings.
  • D. ossarium parasitism rates were significantly lower than other cavity-nesting wasp species.
  • Cavity-nesting bird species are seemingly especially prevalent in this snake's diet.
  • Nest boxes are often used to encourage cavity nesting birds.
  • Additionally, decayed trees, rotting from the inside-out, serve as important habitat to cavity-nesting birds and mammals.
  • Tits are cavity-nesting birds, typically using trees, although Pseudopodoces builds a nest on the ground.
  • They compete with other cavity nesting birds and frugivores.
  • The Northern madtom is a cavity nesting species which creates nests in various locations.
  • Most Psittacidae are cavity nesting birds which form monogamous pair bonds.
  • In general smaller birds tend to hatch faster but there are exceptions, and cavity nesting birds tend to have longer incubation periods.
  • Douglas-fir snags are abundant in forests older than 100-150 years and provide cavity-nesting habitat for numerous forest birds.
  • This bird is a colony-nester, making its nest high up in dead trees in holes originally excavated by colonial cavity-nesting barbets, sometimes with both birds nesting in close proximity.
  • Woodcreepers are arboreal cavity-nesting birds; two or three white eggs are laid and incubated for about 15 to 21 days.
  • One priority consideration when managing wooded habitat for cavity nesting ducks, is to maintain a sufficient population of mature trees in which suitable nesting cavities would be plentiful.
  • The park's stands of old-growth cottonwood shelter it from neighbouring mixed-use areas and serve as habitat for cavity nesting birds, such as barred owls, pileated woodpeckers and red-naped sapsuckers.
  • It is a cavity nesting bird (tree and columnar cactus cavities), laying 3-5 white eggs.
  • Similar shelter-based vacancy chains are likely to take place in many animal groups that use discrete, reusable resources that are limited to occupancy by a single individual or group at a time; some other examples include anemone-dwelling clownfish, and cavity-nesting birds.
  • Activities such as "logging, fuel-wood harvesting, and land developments" have resulted in loss of breeding habitats for cavity-nesting sea ducks, particularly the mergansers, goldeneyes, and buffleheads.
