All feather samples were wing flight feathers (remiges) obtained post-mortem and stored under ambient conditions. The San Diego Natural History Museum provided American White Pelican (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos) feathers, the Los Angeles Zoo provided Cape vulture (Gyps coprotheres) feathers, and the San Diego Zoo provided all other feathers. Feathers were obtained under our research group’s Federal Fish and Wildlife permit.
