In this study, the authors provide compelling evidence that sparrowhawk predation acts as an important causal agent of selection on a key predictor of avian fitness, fledging mass, in great tits but not in blue tits. In general, they show that variation in predation pressure can therefore account for variation in selection, but that specific patterns may not be easily generalised across species.
