Territory quality differs between paired male Common Redstarts Phoenicurus phoenicururs.
Bird Stud. 66: 269–272.
We compared habitat characteristics between territories of paired and unpaired males of the long-distance migratory Common Redstart Phoenicurus phoenicurus. Nesting possibilities and reachable sparse vegetation were more abundant in territories of paired males, clearly highlighting the importance of both parameters when implementing habitat enhancements for the species.
