Data from: Using a multi-isotope approach to inform waterfowl movement in southern Africa

Gregory Mutumi, Graeme Cumming, Alexandre Caron, Mažeika Sullivan & Carlos Caceres
Many far-ranging species depend heavily on relatively small or temporary resources within a heterogeneous landscape. For waterfowl, most species rely on deep, permanent waterbodies as refugia from predators during annual flightless molt periods when synchronous loss and regrowth of the flight feathers occurs. The movements of ducks to and from molt sites are, however, poorly documented for most Afrotropical species and the dependencies of Afrotropical ducks on key sites are unclear, yet this information is...
