Several birds associate with grazing mammals to use them as perches, beaters or to feed on ectoparasites. [...] Key Result This may be associated with the fact that association with capybaras enhance the birds efficiency in catching arthropods.Expand

Behavioral observations in a capybara colony (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris)
TLDR
It is suggested that capybara behavior is similar from one region to another, suggesting that the animals have potential for habituation to humans and are probably good candidates for domestication. Expand

Factors Affecting Feeding Rates of Anis
TLDR
Observations on the feeding rate of the Groove-billed Anis demonstrated quantitatively, first, the advantage in their habit of accompanying cows for the insects the cows scared up and, secondly, the increased abundance of their insect food in the wet season. Expand
The Food of the Red-billed Oxpecker, Buphagus erythrorhynchus (Stanley)
TLDR
The prevalent idea that this bird frees domestic stock of ticks appears to be entirely erroneous, as these birds feed mainly on the raw tissue of open wounds and it is by their action that the open wounds usually occur. Expand
Commensal feeding associations between Yellow Wagtails Motacilla flava and cattle
TLDR
Commensal ‘beating’ associations in which one party exploits prey disturbed by the other seem to be fairly common in terrestrial habitats, but few of them have been studied in detail. Expand
THE RELATIONSHIP OF GRAZING CATTLE TO FORAGING RATES IN ANIS
TLDR
The present study was conducted on both species of ani in Costa Rica during the wet season of 1969 to determine whether or not these birds derive any measurable benefit from their association with cattle. Expand
