Baseline and stress-induced corticosterone (CORT), heart rate (fH), and energy expenditure were measured in eight captive European starlings Sturnus vulgaris during and following a prebasic molt. The fH and oxygen consumption (V O2 ) were measured simultaneously across a range of heart rates, and energy expenditure (kJ/d) was then calculated from data. Energy expenditure and fH were strongly and p... read more
