  1. aModel terms are defined as follows: BoutStatus_logistic = whether the bird was on (1) or off (0) the nest; RectifiedTemp = the temperature of the nest (in  °C) after imputation; AmbientTemperature = the air temperature after imputation; AmbientPressure = barometric pressure after imputation
  2. Candidate models, number of model parameters (K), Akaike’s Information Criterion (AIC), and associated model ranks (∆AIC), and weights (wi) for the determination of Common Tern nest attentiveness status on Skimmer Island by time of day
