Summer feeding ecology of Great Pampa-finches

  title={Summer feeding ecology of Great Pampa-finches},
  author={Laura M. Ferman},
The aim of this study was to assemble data on the summer feeding ecology of the Great Pampa-finch, Embernagra platensis at the Laguna de Guaminí, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and to explore the differences related to the dietary patterns for each sex between winter and summer when possible. The stomach contents of 43 birds were analyzed. The animal fraction was composed of Hymenoptera (45.1%), Coleoptera (32.4%), Lepidoptera (6.0%), Araneae (5%) and Orthoptera (3.2%). The application of the index…

Winter Diet of Great Pampa-Finches Embernagra platensis in Guaminí Lagoon, Argentina
The diet of the Great Pampa-finch includes seeds rather than insects, and males ate more insects and, overall, more items than females, who consumed a greater amount of plants.
Diet of some species of Turdidae in South African grasslands : short communication
Ants and berries were the most frequently recorded dietary items in stomachs of three Oenanthe species, while beetles, ants, termites, berries and seeds were recorded as the most frequent items in the stomachS of the stonechat and two Cercomela species.
Diet of some insectivorous passerines in semi-arid regions of South Africa
Seeds and berries were recorded as frequent items in the stomach contents of species generally regarded as insectivores.

A Mathematical Theory of Communication
It is proved that the authors can get some positive data rate that has the same small error probability and also there is an upper bound of the data rate, which means they cannot achieve the data rates with any encoding scheme that has small enough error probability over the upper bound.
