Migrants may employ different strategies that best optimize energetic trade-offs/ costs associated with specific metabolic demands in preparation for and during their seasonal movements. One strategy is known as partial migration, where members of the same population exhibit either migratory or sedentary behavior patterns. The American goldfinch (Spinus tristis), a known partial migratory species, displays a latitudinal distribution of age-sex classes across the winter range during their… Expand
