Overlap in the wing shape of migratory, nomadic and sedentary grass parrots
Bird wing shape is highly correlated with mobility, and vagile species have more pointed wing tips than sedentary ones. Most studies of bird wing shape are biased to the Northern Hemisphere, and consider only two migratory syndromes (north-south migrants or sedentary species). There are major gaps in knowledge about the wing shapes of different taxa with other movement strategies (e.g. nomads) in the Southern Hemisphere. Parrots are a prominent Southern Hemisphere bird order with complex...[Show more]
