Moult, comprising the growth or replacement of feathers in birds, is an energetically demanding process. As a
result, in many species, the extent of the post-juvenile moult can vary substantially. However, the reasons
underlying this variation remain poorly understood, and the potential life-history consequences of variation in
moult extent are even less clear. In the present study, we aimed to use individual-specific data to identify factors
affecting the extent of the post-juvenile moult...[Show more]
