From: Gow et al. 2019 A range-wide domino effect and resetting of the annual cycle in a migratory bird.
Top panel: Shows the breeding and non-breeding locations of tree swallows with geolocators. Bottom panel documents the timing of the annual cycle of tree swallows colour coded based on breeding latitude (darker blue = farther north).
