This is a Data package that contains three separate datasets and the analysis code for a manuscript 'Familiarity breeds success: pairs that meet earlier experience increased breeding performance in a wild bird population '. The first Dataset (pairs_data_2007_10) and the second dataset (pairs_data_2011_14) contain the data used to analyse the influence of meeting time of a pair of Great tits (i.e. month in the first dataset, week in the second dataset, when a pair was first detected in a flock together) on different components of breeding success of a pair. The third dataset (meeting_and_divorce) was used to analyse whether meeting time of a pair (in winter prior to the breeding season t) influence the probability of a pair to stay together or separate (divorce) to the following breeding season (t+1).
