Thereafter, we recaptured each female at approximately weekly intervals during incubation for additional body mass and TOBEC measurements.
After measuring live body mass and TOBEC for the final time on 22 February 1992, we removed the tags and took additional TOBEC readings of the birds without their tags ([greater than or equal to] 3 readings).
The live body mass and TOBEC measurements taken on 22 February and the results of fat extractions were used to develop calibration equations (multivariable regression models) to predict lipid mass of birds during previous weeks of the study (Morton et al.
