Data from Tree Swallow populations in Davis, CA. Data taken during 2016 breeding season. Traffic noise was experimentally applied to field sites and eggs were cross-fostered between nests that had exposure to varying traffic noise amplitudes. We then assessed direct vs. maternal effects of noise on nestling baseline and stress-induced cort, body condition, and telomere attrition.
