The tyrant flycatchers represent a monophyletic radiation of predominantly insectivorous passerine birds that exhibit a plethora of stereotyped prey capture techniques. However, little is known about their retinal organization. Using retinal wholemounts, we estimated the total number and topography of neurons in the ganglion cell layer in the generalist yellow-bellied elaenia (Elaenia flavogaster) and the up-hover-gleaner mouse-colored tyrannulet (Phaeomyias murina) with the optical… CONTINUE READING
