The title of this chart is “Does Bad Weather Increase Conflict?” This is a stacked bar chart with two categories on the horizontal axis (“No Precipitation” and “Precipitation”) and the percentage of clips on the vertical axis. There are two datasets displayed as two different colored bars. The green bars show the percentage of clips with a displacement and the orange bars show the percentage of clips with no displacement. The green bar seems to be slightly higher for “Precipitation” than “No Precipitation,” suggesting that there may be more displacements when it is precipitating (rain or snow) compared to when it is not.

Reading the Graph: If it’s raining or snowing, do we see more displacements–when one bird attempts to take over the position of another bird? Toggle on and off the difference data sets to see if you can answer these questions or see any other patterns. Notice the height of the different color bars for both categories on the horizontal axis, “No Precipitation” and “Precipitation.” The green bars show the percentage of clips with a displacement and the orange bars show the percentage of clips with no displacements.
