Table 1 Effects of fuel load and day of year on departure probability during the first night following capture in Northern Wheatears, European Robins and Common Blackbirds

From: Stopover departure decisions in songbirds: do long-distance migrants depart earlier and more independently of weather conditions than medium-distance migrants?
