  1. Bird ID corresponds to the last three ring numbers; Area = total area exploited by birds (ha); No. of clusters = number of clusters identified within an individual’s home range; CPart = summed area of clusters divided by the single area encompassing all clusters; DivLocs = Simpson’s index for diversity of locations across clusters; DivArea = Simpson’s index for diversity of areas across clusters; BWTP = water treatment plant basins; WD = wet ditches; WAF = waterholes of alluvial forests, WB = water basins. Numbers indicate the number of clusters corresponding to NH (nesting and potential feeding habitats) or FH (feeding habitats)
