Competitive and global models examined to explain variation in Cooper's hawk nest chronology, nest area occupancy, nest survival, brood size, and brood size at successful nests on two north-Florida study areas, 1995–2000. Sample size was 76 occupied nests at 31 nest areas. Model ranking was based on Akaike's Information Criterion (AIC) corrected for small sample size (AICc). All competitive models (within 2 AIC units of the top model) and the global model are shown. Chronology was evaluated with linear models using an identity-link function; occupancy and nest survival were evaluated with binomial generalized linear models using a logit-link function; and brood size and brood size at successful nests were evaluated with Poisson generalized linear model using a log-link function.
