Skeletal Development at the Time of Fledging in House Wrens

House Wren (Troglodytes aedon) Science Article 1 abstract We examined skeletal development at the time of first flight in House Wrens (Troglodytes aedon) as one step in assessing whether calcium availability limits nestling growth in this species. Young wrens begin flying with about 49 mg of calcium in their skeletons, 30% less calcium than is […]
