Data describing the ability of coal tits (Periparus ater) to retrieve seeds previously cached,

For comparison, also data for the performance of humans on a comparable task.

Human data is used to validate a novel method for obtaining ROC curves based on the order in which judgments are made (compared with a gold-standard method based on self-reported confidence). Coal tit data is then analysed using this novel method.

Data are provided as csv or Excel files. Analysis code is available separately.

Note - due to licensing issues, we have to upload data and code separately, which means the necessary structure has been lost. To recreate our analysis, I suggest you first download the analysis code, then place all the contents of this zip file in a folder "Data" in the same location. The relative paths should then all work correctly. In a nutshell, you want the top-level folder to have subfolders Data, AnalysisCode,Fits and Graphs.
