ABSTRACT Leapfrog migration systems, whereby more-northern breeding populations overwinter the farthest south, provide unique opportunities to further our understanding of how environmental variation shapes migratory behavior and the seasonal distributions of birds. Leapfrog migration in a western Fox Sparrow subspecies complex (Passerella iliaca unalaschcensis, Sooty Fox Sparrow) was described as early as 1920, and has served as an exemplar of leapfrog systems in subsequent theoretical work… CONTINUE READING
