Does anyone have bugs code for m-array mark-recapture data that uses a
random-effect/hyper-distribution for temporal variation in both survival
and recapture rate. I am also looking for an application (preferably a
bird data set as I want to use it for my EURING presentation) that works
well without using informative priors. I would like to compare bugs with
AD Model Builder (I have ADMB code if anyone is interested).
