Results from a field experiment using 3D bird models, and artificial nests and egg, to test hypothesized that the presence of a bird’s decoy painted with exuberant color pattern will increase predation rate when compared to a nest with a decoy painted with dull coloration. The data were collected by Carlos Biagolini-Jr and Daniel F.Perrella.
