|Summary of the candidate models predicting the probability of survival (Φ)|
|5||Age + Wing length||Time||6||165.85||2.176||0.092|
|6||Sex + Wing length||Time||6||165.92||2.243||0.089|
|7||Age + Sex + Wing length||Time||7||167.93||4.257||0.032|
The model with Time alone was found to be the best model for predicting the probability of recapture (p), and thus p remains as a constant in this model; npar shows the number of parameters; QAICc is the adjusted AIC value following correction for overdipersion, and ∆QAICc shows the difference between the specified model and the ‘best’ model. Models with a ∆QAICc < 2 are considered not to differ from the best model.
