--We estimated fat load, length of stopover, and rate of mass change for six Neotropical migrant landbird species at a site along the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Swainson's Thrushes (Catharus ustulatus), Gray Catbirds (Dumetella carolinensis), White-eyed Vireos (Vireo griseus), Red-eyed Vireos (V. olivaceus), Magnolia Warblers (Dendroica magnolia), and American Redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla) were captured on Fort Morgan Peninsula in coastal Alabama during fall migration, 1990 to 1992… CONTINUE READING
