Abstract
<p>Hydrogen isotopes (δ<sup>2</sup>H) are often used to infer the origins of migratory animals based on the strong correlation between deuterium content of tissues and long-term patterns of precipitation. However, the extreme flood and drought dynamics of surface waters in prairie wetland systems could mask these expected correlations. We investigated H isotopic variability in an aquatic food web associated with Tree Swallows (<i>Tachycineta bicolor</i>) that rely heavily on wetland-derived aerial insects f
