Data from: Finish with a sprint: evidence for time‐selected last leg of migration in a long‐distance migratory songbird

Martins Briedis, Steffen Hahn, Miloš Krist & Peter Adamík
Under time‐selected migration, birds should choose a strategy for outcompeting rivals over securing access to prime resources at the final destination. Thus, migration can be viewed as a race among individuals where winners are arriving first when conditions are suitable.
