SummaryThe daily energy requirements of swallow Hirundo rustica and sand martin Riparia riparia adults with broods of different sizes were compared with the energy (food) gain rates of adults. Energy requirements of broods were obtained from food delivery rates, growth rates and from published data. The energy requirements of adults were obtained from D2O18 measurements and from time budgets. Energy gain rates were measured from food delivery rates to collared nestlings. These energy gain rates… CONTINUE READING
