Table 1 Seasonal differences in stopover use among populations. We report the total, mean, and standard error of the number of stopovers used by each population and during each migration season. As stopover use is expected to vary as a function of migration distance, we report the mean and standard error of migration distance per stopover used

From: Inclement weather forces stopovers and prevents migratory progress for obligate soaring migrants
