Table 3 Effect of fuel load on nocturnal departure timing (proportion of night at departure) 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?
