Ageing spotted crakes

August 26, 2017


Nearly every year I manage to trap a Spotted Crake or two at my ringing site in Meijendel. Over the years I noticed a helpful ageing feature that I cannot find in the books on my shelf: feather wear. I wrote a note on ageing Spotted Crakes in summer and early autumn, that includes this feature. It should also be useful in the field! I hope it'll be helpful.
