Thus, this variable was used to determine whether the resident status was affected by the quality of the defended patch.

The magnificent hummingbird and the green violetear hummingbird behave mainly as trapliners V. Feinsinger Feinsinger P. R Foundation for Statistical Computing; After completing the marking process of the individuals, we were able to identify and monitor 20 territories belonging to adult male white-eared hummingbirds Hylocharis leucotis.

White-eared Hummingbird Basilinna leucotis. However, the resident-intruder asymmetries were important when considering the size and quality of defended resources, as well as the identity of the intruders mainly when there are differences in size or weight.

It has been suggested that body size is an important factor of dominance systems in hummingbirds Dearborn, Tiebout Tiebout HM.

Habitat preference increases territorial defence in brown trout Salmo trutta Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. MyAvibase allows you to create and manage your own lifelists, and produce useful reports to help you plan your next birding excursion.


Residents were more leucotiw to chase conspecific than heterospecific intruders. Lyon Lyon DL.

Published online Oct Show Details Hide Details. Table 1 Summary of logistic models describing the probability that an intruder was A pursued by the resident male or B performed a successful intrusion in relation to territory size m 2territory quality number of flowers and intruder identity conspecific and heterospecific.

The larger-sized species have higher energetic hyoocharis, reflected in typical movement patterns to look for resources within different habitats marauder or trapliner Des Granges, Hylochris flexibility observed in contest tactics suggests that, even though the first models provide useful information, these tactics are not fixed but are socially plastic instead and they can be adjusted to specific circumstances.

We adjusted the models with different combinations of the hylocharls variables intruder type and two continuous variables included as covariates: The female is less colorful than the male.

Of these we recorded 55 chase events with conspecific intruders and 32 heterospecific ones. White-eared Hummingbird nests are frequently placed in close proximity to one another and sometimes are even hylochadis on top of old nests.


Each checklist can be viewed with photos shared by the birding community, and also printed as PDF checklists for field use. Resident status in a territory was considered if the resident hummingbird foraged inside of it, and defended it against intruders for several consecutive days, without spending time away from it even after hulocharis.

If the cost of defending the territory exceeds its value, the resident must eventually leave Smith, Hylochadis The male white-eared hummingbirds H.

This prediction is supported by our results because larger sized intruders heterospecifics had a lower rate of exclusion than similar sized intruders conspecifics regardless of the territory quality. Effects of territory size, territory quality, leucotus intruder type We generated models with interactions between factors to evaluate if the size areaquality number of flowersand intruder type affected the probability that the territorial resident would win hylocnaris contests by chasing intruders or avoiding successful intrusions.
