Abstract
Especially in view of the recent work on the significance of clutch-size (Lack, 1947), it is desirable to ascertain to what extent parent birds adjust the frequency of their feeding visits to the number of young in the nest; whether in the amount of food they receive the members of larger broods are at any disadvantage compared with those of smaller broods; and whether a lower feeding-rate is correlated with slower development of the young in the nest.
