Pathways of information transmission amongst wild songbirds follow experimentally imposed changes in social foraging structure

Abstract:

Animals regularly use information from others to shape their decisions. Yet, determining how changes in social structure affect information flow and social learning strategies has remained challenging. We manipulated the social structure of a large community of wild songbirds by controlling which individuals could feed together at automated feeding stations (‘selective feeders’). We then provided novel ephemeral food patches freely accessible to all birds and recorded the spread of this...
