Summary The energy content of the deposited reserve tissue depended on the condition of the birds, since the energy required for body mass gain was low in lean birds and high in fat birds. Maintenance metabolism was relatively low compared to wader species wintering in temperate regions, suggested to be an adaptation towards reduced endogenous heat production, which may help in avoiding heat stress under tropical conditions. -from Authors
