Jackdaws are monogamous and build simple nests of sticks in cavities in trees, cliffs, or buildings. About five pale blue or blue-green eggs with brown speckles are laid and incubated by the female. The young fledge in four to five weeks. In his book King Solomon's Ring , Konrad Lorenz described and analysed the complex social interactions in a Jackdaw flock which lived around his house in Altenberg , Austria.
He ringed them for identification and caged them in the winter to prevent their annual migration.

Lorenz found that the birds have a hierarchy , with higher-ranked birds dominating lower-ranked birds. Pair-bonded birds share the same rank.

Unmated females are the lowest members in the pecking order, and are the last to have access to food and shelter. This female immediately assumed a dominant position in the social hierarchy and demonstrated this by pecking others.
According to Lorenz, the most significant factor in social behaviour was the immediate and intuitive grasp of the new hierarchy by each bird in the flock. To help populations of all our birds, The Wildlife Trusts are working towards a 'Living Landscape': a network of habitats and wildlife corridors across town and country, which are good for both wildlife and people.
