Table 2 Mean (± SE) first landing latency (FLL; sec Table 1) of sparrows by their order of landing in clumped and dispersed patch distributions (n = 21 sessions). Landing times by subsequent sparrows after the first landed sparrow are expressed as the delay time

From: Energy state affects exploratory behavior of tree sparrows in a group context under differential food-patch distributions

Clumped 813.7 ± 182.0 123.0 ± 32.9 406.5 ± 128.9 627.0 ± 152.6
Dispersed 634.3 ± 151.0 154.1 ± 40.0 456.5 ± 150.1 730.8 ± 181.6
