Foraging Ovenbird Follows Armadillo

Ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) Science Article 5

abstract

Report an observation of a foraging Ovenbird (Seiurus uurocapiZZus) following a ninebandedarmadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus), near Gainesville, Florida. Close attendance only while the armadillo was moving and disturbing leaf litter suggests the Ovenbird was taking advantage of increased prey availability caused by the armadillo’s flushing of insects
