Table 2 Coefficients of the top generalized mixed-effects model (GLMM; binomial) using mean values of weather variables to predict the proportion of activity during stopovers (where a bird moved > 1 km per hour) by GPS-GSM tagged Turkey Vultures (n = 460). Individual (n = 34) nested within population (n = 4) was included as a random effect (both random effects: SD = 0.079). Estimates reported here are of unscaled predictors

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