```Dear Jim,
I am sorry for not explaining the question in a clear way. I am trying to
explain it, let's see how much clear I can make it.

For the given example, (raw.data). Let's say, the 11 birds were marked and
released at site A in a landscape (a combination of sites siteA, siteB,
site C) in 2010.

In 2011, we revisited at the sites (siteA, SiteB, SiteC), among the 11
birds, we recaptured 3 individuals at Site A, 3 at Site B, 1 at site C but
we could not see 4 individuals at any sites.

Again in 2012, we revisited at the sites (SiteA, SiteB, SiteC), we again
recaptured 2 individuals which was recaptured at Site A in 2011 but 1
individual could not seen at any sites (in another words: in 2011 at the
site A  we had recaptured 3 individuals, among them 2 were again seen at
site A, but we could not see one individual in any sites).

Similarly,we had recaptured 3 individuals in 2011 at the site B, but in
2012, among three individuals, one was again recaptured in Site B but 2
individuals could not be seen at any sites.

Likewise, for SiteC in 2012, we had recaptured 1 at that site (siteC), but
in next year (2012), we could not see at any of the sites.

Again, we had not seen 4 individuals in 2011, but later in 2012, among
these 4 individuals, we recaptured one individual for each site  B and C,
and 2 individuals could not be seen.

I have given the example dataset. If it is really confusing and takes your
lots of time, please forget it, I will try to do in Excel manually,but it
is taking so much time and easily making errors. Your help will be very
useful.

Sincerely,

raw.data<-structure(list(Time1 = structure(c(1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L,
1L, 1L, 1L, 1L), .Label = "SiteA", class = "factor"), Time2 =
structure(c(1L, 4L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 1L, 3L, 3L, 3L), .Label = c("0",
"SiteA",
"SiteB", "SiteC"), class = "factor"), Time3 = structure(c(2L,
2L, 2L, 1L, 2L, 1L, 1L, 3L, 3L, 1L, 3L), .Label = c("0", "SiteA",
"SiteB"), class = "factor")), .Names = c("Time1", "Time2", "Time3"
