Table 2 Number of estimated parameters (K), AIC, and ΔAIC (compared with best model) for 3-state HMMs with different covariate dependences during general phase for residents and non-residents, based on 1-h interval dataset. The effect of the time of day is cyclical over 24 h. For both data sets, the model with all three covariates was selected by the AIC
