AbstractInterspecific foraging associations are well-documented phenomena, characterized by one or more species exploiting the behavior of another species to decrease predation or increase foraging success. In rare cases, birds directly exploit human behavior, but examples of these interactions are limited to species that naturally occur in edge, open, or disturbed habitats. With observations and experiments we provide evidence of insectivorous birds exploiting human disturbance in primary…

Foraging opportunities drive interspecific associations between rock kestrels and desert baboons
TLDR
It is found that kestrel associations with baboons vary with season, show diurnal cycles and are more frequent when the baboons are in open desert habitat, engaged in travel foraging and in a large group, consistent with the hypothesis that the kestrell–baboon association is driven by the foraging opportunities acquired by theKestrels.
The Role of Mountain Ranges in the Diversification of Birds
TLDR
The distribution of small-ranged species is concentrated near tropical coasts, where moderation of the climate in topographically complex areas creates cloud forests and stable local conditions, and thereby the role of these places as cradles of biodiversity.
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.

Summary. 1 In winter, in England, the Robin chiefly frequents cultivated land and the wood-edge, but a few occur in the interior of woods. In summer, proportionately more frequent the interior of
A REVIEW OF AFRICAN BIRDS FEEDING IN ASSOCIATION WITH MAMMALS
TLDR
The lack of quantitative information on these feeding associations limits the conclusions that can be drawn, although their significance for the obligate ectoparasite gleaners, Buphagus species,...
Foraging Association between Coatis (Nasua nasua) and Birds of the Atlantic Forest, Brazil
TLDR
Two bird species, Leucopternis polionota and Dendrocincla fuliginosa, frequently follow coatis (Nasua nasua) while they forage in the Atlantic forest of southeastern Brazil, which can represent a coping strategy with the reduced resource availability during the drier season.
Comparative Behavior of Red and Giant Pandas in the Wolong Reserve, China
TLDR
The energetic and mechanical advantages associated with increased size suggest that the giant panda evolved from a small bamboo-eating animal resembling the red panda, which is a relatively non-selective feeder that barely chews its food.
Giant Pandas in a Changing Landscape
The giant panda has been restricted to several disjunct montane forest populations, and habitat loss and fragmentation are the primary threats to its survival. For pandas to survive, conservation

TLDR
Evidence is provided that the ecological function of primates extends beyond their manifold interactions with plants, but may remain underestimated, and a strong signal is detected in the geographic distribution of PNPAs, with a larger number in the Neotropics compared to Africa and Asia.
