.... To test this, we combined field manipulations, captivity measurements and geolocation data. We advanced and delayed hatching dates in pied flycatchers ( Ficedula hypoleuca ) and measured how the timing of subsequent stages (male moult and migration) were affected. There was no causal effect of manipulated...
