Differential use of wingspreading (wing 50) and panting/gular fluter (pant 50), i.e. wing 50 minus pant50 values, were significantly positively correlated with activity and varied significantly with surface water drinking dependency. Species with low activity demands showed wing 50 values lower than pant 50 values, and non-drinkers showed lower wing 50 than pant 50 values, compared to drinkers. Black dots and clear circles represent drinking and non-drinking species respectively
