1 (a) Carolina chickadee, and (b) Bob Mauck with cages holding visually isolated Carolina chickadees growing induced feathers while on a diet of 80%, 90%, or 100% of their ad libitum diet. Photographs by the author. As predicted, there was a direct relation between proportion of ad libitum diet and width of induced growth bars as a proportion of the width of the original growth bars. 2). Similarly, the mass of the induced feather as a proportion of the mass of the original feather was significantly lighter in the 80% group than in the 90% group, while the 90% and 100% groups were about the same.

He was attempting to answer a simple and intriguing question. e. e. distal) edges of the vanes of a tail feather make with the rachis, or shaft. 1). The reason for the difference is not known, but may be related to the fact that growth of the first rectrix (started in the nest and finished after a juvenile bird fledges) permanently expands the follicle so that the tips of succeeding feathers from the same follicle can be broader earlier in their growth. Wiseman predicted that if this follicle-expansion idea was correct, then if he induced a juvenile to grow a second feather, the tip of the second feather would be more oblique than the tip of the first.

Over the past decade or so, the continuing decrease in numbers of Neotropical migrant birds breeding in North America has called forth a variety of studies searching for causes of the declines. Part of the recent effort has focused on the southern wintering grounds, where many migratory bird species actually spend more of the year than they do in the breeding range. One such project, by Allan Strong and Thomas Sherry, involved intensive ecological study of ovenbirds on the island of Jamaica (Strong and Sherry 2000).
