‘A tale of two tails: asymmetry in Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor)’ is published in “Avian Research“.  Article online here or PDF here

In winter 2016-2017 I started a pilot project in collaboration with Behavioural Biologist Prof. dr. A.G.G. Ton Groothuis. We want to investigate if certain Great Grey Shrikes (Lanius excubitor) have there own personality and preference for the way they fix their prey and how these activities are lateralized (asymmetrical in terms of preference for leg and eye).

The aim of the project is to see (1) to what extent this behavior is lateralized on an individual level, (2) on population level (3) and how it is linked to personality properties. Next winter (2017-2018) we will officially start the project.
