Summary Energy budgets for nestling growth are presented for sandwich tern Sterna sandvicensis, common tern S. hirundo, Arctic tern S. paradisaea, and herring gull Larus argentatus. Energy used in the production of body tissue averaged 27% (of which 7% for biosynthesis) while BMR accounted for 45%, the remainder being cost of activity and thermoregulation (28%). Where quantified, cost of temperature regulation accounted for only 10% of the total expenditure under field conditions. A regression made of metabolic energy (ME) intake over the entire nestling period against body mass of the fledgling based on eight studies of gulls and terns resulted in ME=35.14×M1.0105. -from Authors
