  1. Variance explained by individual ID across pooled data of top feature variable, stZ. Variance and standard error (SE) of the random effect of individual ID were estimated over 1000 bootstrapped samples within a generalized linear mixed effects model using the ‘rptR’ package in R [63], adjusted for maternal post-partum mass for repeat capture females (n = 11). No variance was explained by the random effect of year. Repeatability (adj.-R) for each behaviour was estimated with specific feature variables (Feat. Var.) corresponding to each behaviour using the same mixed effect model structure. Those repeatability estimates that were significant as determined through likelihood ratio tests are labelled with an (*)
