The relative dominance of a competitor might also affect the use of cache protection tactics by foodcachers. ’s chimps, the capacity for cachers to physically compete with other birds for access to cache sites is also specific to dominant scrubjays (Dally et al. 2005b). Similarly, only dominant birds are able to physically defend cache sites against potential pilferers. We might therefore expect cachers to be most likely to engage in protective behaviours when caching in view of dominant birds, thereby reducing the need to actively defend cache sites and negating the need for aggressive interaction which carries a risk of injury or even death.
