The package Eagle was written by Ted Catchpole and fits Freeman-Morgan type ring-recovery models. It is written in Matlab, however, it is conversational, and so you do not need to know Matlab in order to run the program. The package can be used to fit models using maximum likelihood and can also perform score tests for comparing different nested models.

Program Kalm was written by P. Besbeas and is a piece of software capable of fitting integrated models to ring-recovery and census data. The software is written in Matlab, and is similar in conversational style to Eagle.
