Abstract The Banded Ground-cuckoo (Neomorphus radiolosus) is a rare, endangered, and poorly known species endemic to the Chocó Biogeographic Zone. We summarize 7 months of data from radio tracking an adult in northwestern Ecuador. Home range estimates were 42.2 ha (minimum convex polygon) and 49.9 ha (95% kernel analysis); the core area was 3.4 ha (50% kernel analysis). The bird favored undisturbed habitat and avoided secondary forest. It was primarily insectivorous and rarely associated with… 
Nesting Biology, Home Range, and Habitat Use of the Brown Wood Rail (Aramides wolfi) in Northwest Ecuador
TLDR
This easily overlooked species may be more resilient to moderate levels of habitat degradation than previously suspected, but extensive deforestation throughout its range justifies its current status as ‘Vulnerable to Extinction’.
AVIFAUNA OF THE MACHE CHINDUL ECOLOGICAL RESERVE, NORTHWEST ECUADOR
We report on the avifauna of the 120,000 ha Mache Chindul Ecological Reserve (REMACH), northwest Ecuador. The study area is located in a poorly studied transition zone between three major Neotropical
Movements and use of space by Mangrove Cuckoos (Coccyzus minor) in Florida, USA
TLDR
Although individual birds showed no evidence of avoiding anthropogenic edges, they did not incorporate developed areas into their daily movements and home ranges consisted almost entirely of mangrove forest.
Noteworthy records of the birds Neomorphus radiolosus Sclater and Salvin, 1878 (Cuculiformes: Cuculidae), Geotrygon frenata (Tschudi, 1843) (Columbiformes: Columbidae) and Odontophorus hyperythrus Gould, 1858 (Galliformes: Odontophoridae) in the Western Cordillera of the Colombian Andes
TLDR
Camera trapping appears as promising tool for recording data of the distribution of bird species in the Pacific Slope of the Western Andes of Colombia and extends its geographic distribution 130 km north of its known range.
Amphibian Diversity and Species Composition in Relation to Habitat Type and Alteration in the Mache–Chindul Reserve, Northwest Ecuador
TLDR
The findings suggest that amphibian assemblages in different habitat types (i.e., riparian vs. interior forest) may vary in vulnerability to habitat alteration, and a good potential indicator species, Oophaga sylvatica, is recognized for identifying pristine habitat.
Spacing Pattern of the Crested Serpent-Eagle (Spilornis Cheela Hoya) in Southern Taiwan
TLDR
At the level of AIM core area overlap, core areas of females were smaller, and female to female relationships showed considerably more range exclusivity than those of male to female and male to male.

NESTING BIOLOGY OF THE BANDED GROUND-CUCKOO (NEOMORPHUS RADIOLOSUS)
TLDR
This work documented two nesting attempts in the Mache-Chindul Ecological Reserve, Esmeraldas Province, northwest Ecuador, and documented the first information on nesting biology for the Banded Ground-cuckoo.
Population densities and home range sizes of the Chestnut Wood‐quail
ABSTRACT We present the first report of population density and home range estimates for the Chestnut Wood-quail (Odontophorus hyperythrus), an endemic and nearly threatened species of the Colombian
FRUIT ABUNDANCE AND LOCAL DISTRIBUTION OF WINTERING HERMIT THRUSHES (CATHARUS GUTTATUS) AND YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS (DENDROICA CORONATA)
TLDR
The results underscore the importance of fruit to wintering birds, as the overall percentage of variation in winter bird abundance explained by diff erences in ripe- fruit biomass was modest, indicating that other factors are also important.
FRUIT ABUNDANCE AND LOCAL DISTRIBUTION OF WINTERING HERMIT THRUSHES (CATHARUS GUTTATUS) AND YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS (DENDROICA CORONATA) IN SOUTH CAROLINA
TLDR
The results underscore the importance of fruit to wintering birds, as the overall percentage of variation in winter bird abundance explained by differences in ripefruit biomass was modest, indicating that other factors are also important.
Exclusive frugivory and seed dispersal of Rhamnus alaternus in the bird breeding season
TLDR
Avian frugivory and seed dispersal in a dioecious shrub, Rhamnus alaternus, is studied, focusing on the quantitative and qualitative components of effectiveness, to find out whether fruit fruiting at a time when other ripe fruits are not available avoids interspecific competition for seed dispersers.
Inter-related age-dependent patterns of ecology and behaviour in a population of silvereyes (Aves: Zosteropidae)
TLDR
Adult silvereyes were socially dominant to juveniles, and were more discriminating in their defence of fig trees and figs, which were common in the clearings and edges of the Pisonia forest.
Some aspects of frugivory by bird populations using coastal dune scrub in Lincolnshire
TLDR
The fruit diets of Sylvia warblers, and some thrushes, were studied during 1989 at a coastal scrubland site, using faecal examination, indicating that even the most frugivorous species always took other food, normally insects, to supplement their diet.
Home Ranges and Group-territoriality in Chowchillas Orthonyx spaldingii
TLDR
Chowchillas live year-round in groups of 2-5 birds, cooperate in territory defence and forage in groups, and home range size increased with group size, found in other studies of group-territorial birds.
Compensatory frugivory in migratory Sylvia warblers: geographical responses to season length
TLDR
Garden Warblers accelerated the rate of fattening and reduced the time needed to prepare for migration when feeding on a mixed fruit diet and there were indications that Blackcaps directly influenced the fruit choice of Garden Warblers when fruits preferred by both species were scarce.
Avian Frugivory and Seed Dispersal in Eastern North America
There was a time when avian ecology was overwhelmingly centered in the temperate zone, to the sorry neglect of the ecology of birds in the tropics. But in the matter of plant-animal (particularly
