τ, coefficient of intraclass correlation based on two repeated measurements across in average 35.5 days (min 16, max 51), based on variance components from ANOVA with study individual as categorical predictors, or from ANCOVA with body mass included as covariate (which provides repeatability of mass-independent trait values).
