Comparative foraging ecology of five species of ground-pouncing birds in western Australian woodlands with comments on species decline


Comparative foraging ecology of five species of ground-pouncing birds in western Australian woodlands with comments on species decline



Ornithological Science 1(1): 29-40



ISSN/ISBN: 1347-0558

We compare the foraging ecology of five Australian robins (Petroica multicolor, P. goodenovii, Eopsaltria griseogularis, Microeca fascinans and Melanodryas cucullata) in woodlands of Western Australia. Australian robins are insectivorous and obtain the greatest proportion of their prey by pouncing from a perch to the ground. Data were collected at three different sites in eucalypt (Eucalyptus) woodland and two sites in acacia (Acacia) woodland.
