3.2. MAPS 2006 protocol

The feather-pulled field must now be either letter “O” (one outer primary pulled) or letter “I” (two primaries pulled, one outer and one inner); formerly it was just “P” for feather pulled.

A new field was added at the end of the sheet: cloacal swab, containing either 1 or 2. Code F was added in the 2007 field season.

For the output record format, see Section 5.1, “MAPS 2006 output format”.
