Abstract

•We compared antipredator behaviour of male siskins with large and small black bibs.•Black bib size was related to personality (males with large bibs were proactive).•Males with large bibs had higher scan rates and uttered more distress calls.•Antipredator behaviours compensated for higher predation risk of proactive males.
