Table 2 Effects of age (Age = linear relationship, and Age2= quadratic relationship), sex, stage, species and year on trip characteristics and activity patterns of black-browed and grey-headed breeding at Bird Island, South Georgia. ‘x’ indicates terms retained in the average of the best-supported models for each response variable (full model selection and parameter estimates are listed in Additional file 1: Tables S3 and S4)
