Data from: Individual shifts toward safety explain age-related foraging distribution in a gregarious shorebird

Piet J. Van Den Hout, Theunis Piersma, Job Ten Horn, Bernard Spaans & Tamar Lok
Although age-related spatial segregation is ubiquitous, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Here, we aim to elucidate the processes behind a previously established age-related foraging distribution of red knots (Calidris canutus canutus) in their main wintering area in West Africa (Banc d’Arguin, Mauritania). Based on 10 years of observations of 1232 uniquely color-ringed individuals of 1 to 18+ years old, we examined whether the observed age-related foraging distribution resulted from 1) spatial differences in mortality...
