Abstract Tracing movements of migratory birds between breeding and wintering areas is important for both theoretical and conservation purposes. Intrinsic markers such as stable isotopes have received considerable attention because of their usefulness for evaluating migratory connections without the need to mark and recapture individuals. Establishing migratory linkages using stable-isotope markers hinges on knowing which tissues most accurately reflect the isotopic signature of previous feeding… CONTINUE READING
