Figure 4

The standard error of estimates of apparent survival ( Φ ) in relation to subsample size and time after fledging. If the initial sample size is small, the uncertainty of estimates greatly increases towards later encounters. Light gray dots and spike lines are drawn for data points below the surface (negative residuals), black dots and lines indicate data above the surface. Surface fitted using the distance-weighted least squares method.
