Summer Tanager (Piranga rubra) Science Article 2

abstract

A Summer Tanager (Piranga rubra) was observed attempting to eat an anole (Anolis carolinensis) at a migratory stopover site. The event may reflect the importance ofbehavioral plasticity during migration, but might also be the result of a simple stimulus response mechanism.
