Summary
1. Long-tailed tits Aegithalos caudatus L. are cooperative breeders in which breeders
that have failed in their own breeding attempt become helpers at the nest of relatives. We
investigated the effects of kinship on the spatial dynamics of non-breeding flocks of
long-tailed tits in order to determine the information available on the kinship of other
members of the population from their use of home ranges.
