the natal home range and independence from parental resources) |

Description |
Reference |

1 | First day beyond circular parental territory radius (half the mean nearest neighbour distance) – 2.9 km | [20,21] |

2 | First day beyond the mean nearest neighbour distance – 5.8 km | [20,21] |

3 | First day over 20 km from natal nest | [16,20] |

4 | First day beyond circular parental territory radius (half the inter-nest distance) and not within that distance for 2 consecutive locations | [17,20,21] |

5 | First day beyond the mean inter-nest distance and not within that distance for 2 consecutive locations | [20,21] |

6 | All locations over the mean distance to nest | [10] |

7 | First day beyond maximum ranging distance (9 km) and not within usual range (6 km) for the following 10 days | This study |

8 | Highest coefficient of variation over a 3 record period | [20,21] |

9 | Highest coefficient of variation over a 5 record period | [20,21] |

10 | Highest coefficient of variation over a 10 record | [20,21] |

11 | Highest coefficient of variation over a 30 day period | [20,21] |

12 | Maximum change in proportion of locations inside natal home range (-30 days: +30 days ) | This study |

Methods 1-7 are distance threshold methods and 8-11 are coefficient of variation calculated around each day.
