Figure 1. Frequency distribution of wing chord for female and male Slate-throated Redstarts.

Frequency distribution of wing chord for female and male Slate-throated Redstarts (Myioborus miniatus comptus) captured in Monteverde, Costa Rica, 2000-2004 (R. L. Mumme, unpublished data).

Figure 2. Subspecific variation in the extent of white in the tails of Slate-throated Redstarts.

Subspecific variation in the extent of white in the tails of Slate-throated Redstarts (Myioborus miniatus), as determined from 293 known-sex museum specimens of all 12 recognized subspecies. The tail white index is an approximate measure of the proportion of the outer four rectrices that is white, and is calculated as the mean of (maximum linear extent of white in outer vane + maximum linear extent of white in inner vane)/(2 * total length of rectrix) for the four outer rectrices, rectrices 3-6 (R. L. Mumme, unpublished data).
