I compared the morphological traits or differences in habitat characteristics to study their effects on the foraging behaviour of the Dark-necked Tailorbird (Orthotomus atrogularis) and the Ashy Tailorbird (0. rujiceps). I also made seasonal comparisons for the former. The results show that despite differences in the wing length between these two tailorbird species, their frequency use of different foraging maneuvers did not differ. The differences in height of the vegetation between the… CONTINUE READING
