Living in groups presents individuals with social opportunities and challenges that solitary species do not face. For example, offspring have a greater choice of who to solicit food from, it enables the evolution of complex vigilance behaviours and has the potential to change how a species influence can influence the behaviours of other species. I will present some of the work that I have carried out for my PhD and in collaboration with other researchers from the Pied Babbler Project. The work that I will be presenting varies from investigations into within-group social behaviours (such as begging and sentinel behaviour), to how different species interact in the environment. I will reveal how field experiments on our wild population have uncovered some of the complexities of the lives of these cooperative birds.
