How does physical contact relate to success?

Choose What To Display

A stacked bar chart with two categories on the horizontal axis: Successful Displacements and Unsuccessful Displacements. Beside each category is N = to the number of each category. There were 1,064 successful displacements and 63 unsuccessful displacements. Along the vertical axis is the percentage of displacements. There are three colors in the stacked bar chart for either successful or unsuccessful displacements: green, orange, and light blue. For successful displacements, the orange bar, which refers to the displacements with no physical contact is the largest. For unsuccessful displacements, the orange and light blue bar, which refers to displacements in which there is no consensus on physical contact, are about the same size.

Reading the Graph: How do successful displacements compare to unsuccessful displacements? Are birds more or less physical when successfully displacing other birds? Find out and see if you notice any other patterns by simplifying the graph and clicking on the checked boxes under “Choose What To Display.”

Notes: For successful displacements and unsuccessful displacements, the green bars refer to the percentage that involve physical contact between the initiator and target, the orange bars refer to the percentage that involve no physical contact, and the light blue bars refer to the percentage in which there is no consensus whether there is or isn’t physical contact. When less than 60% of people who viewed a clip and said there was at least one displacement agree on whether there was physical contact or not, it is left as “Unsure.” Also, this visualization only considers the first displacement in a clip in which 60% of people agreed on the species for initiator and receiver of the displacement as well as the outcome (76% of clips only had one displacement). (N=the number of successful or unsuccessful displacements)
