Presents a study which evaluated the effects of repeated restraint on the ability of postnatally developing chicks and adults to respond to a repeated standardized stressor of capture and handling in a semialtricial raptorial species, the American kestrel. Blood sampling and general procedure; Corticosterone radioimmunoassay analysis; Corticosterone levels in postnatally developing chicks and adults.
