To evaluate potential differences in fitness relative to phenological period, we estimated mass change in 13 species of landbird migrants [Red-eyed Vireo (Vireo olivaceus), Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula), Hermit Thrush (Catharus guttatus), Veery (Catharus fuscescens), Wood Thrush (Hylocichla mustelina), Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis), Blue-winged Warbler (Vermivora pinus), Nashville Warbler (Vermivara mficapilla), Magnolia Warbler (Setophaga magnolia), Chestnut-sided Warbler (Setophaga pensylvanica), Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapillus), Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas), and White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) ].
STOUFFER & DWYER (2003) determinaron la existencia de migracion diferencial en Catharus guttatus, encontrando que las hembras parten primero que los machos en la migracion de otono debido a que no pueden competir con ellos por recursos en los sitios de invernada.
Por otro lado, las especies con menor abundancia fueron Calidris minutilla, Megascops trichopsis, Eugenes fulgens y Catharus guttatus, por mencionar algunas (Anexo 1).
