To do so, they shift their daily rhythm from diurnality to nocturnality. In captivity this is observed as a gradual transition of daytime activity developing into nocturnal activity, but how wild birds prepare their daily rhythms for migration remains largely unknown. Using an automated radio-telemetry system, we compared activity patterns of free-living migrant and resident European blackbirds (Turdus merula) in a partially migratory population during the pre-migratory season. We found that activity patterns between migrant and resident birds did not differ during day and night. Migrants did not change their daily rhythm in a progressive manner as has been observed in captivity, but instead abruptly became active during the night of departure. The rapid shift in rhythmicity might be more common across migratory songbird species, but may not have been observed before in wild animals due to a lack of technology.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Wikelski, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schmidt, Andreas</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Fudickar, Adam M.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Zúñiga, Daniel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Jensen, Willi</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Jensen, Willi</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/37468/3/Zuniga_0-370106.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Schmidt, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-02-16T07:34:11Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Abrupt switch to migratory night flight in a wild migratory songbird</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-02-16T07:34:11Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Falconer, Jade</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/37468"/> <dc:creator>Falconer, Jade</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Wikelski, Martin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
