ranked 3c+/2c

Fig. 1. Cross-tabulation of parameters from 891 3c+ and 476 2c adult Dunlin, Sound area, 11.7 - 30.8, 1995 - 2004. Upper left: Age versus inner primary ranking (see text), Upper right: Age versus moult, Lower left: 3c+ ranking versus moult, Lower right: 2c ranking versus moult. m = moulting (at least one primary shed), nm = not moulting (no primaries shed). Birds with "adult buff" medians and droplet primary coverts included, but not birds with fresh remex.
