Animal Ethics

The following information was supplied relating to ethical approvals (i.e., approving body and any reference numbers):

All blood samples were for this study were collected for prior ecological studies for an MSc study by Kath Calf (Tjorve) at Stellenbosch University (1998-1999) under the supervision of Prof. Michael Cherry (Stellenbosch University) and Prof. Colleen Downs (University of KZN)(detailed in publications Calf, Downs & Cherry 2001, 2003). Birds were captured in mist-nets under permits from SAFRING South Africa, Western Cape Province and Free State Province. All sampled birds were released without injury and included in subsequent observational behavioural studies.
