The article provides a truly integrated analysis of the effect of climate on the demography of a long-distance migrant at the scale of the flyway population. We found that different demographic traits responded to the climate in opposing ways, highlighting the complexity of predicting population responses to climate change. Photo credit: F. Vigfusdottir.
