First information concerning nestling diet in the Bare-necked Fruitcrow Gymnoderus foetidus

Tim Marlow

Resumen

Despite being widespread throughout most of the Amazon, the Bare-necked Fruitcrow Gymnoderus foetidus is poorly known and nestling diet is undocumented. I report herein the first observations on the nestling diet in this cotinga.

A pesar de tener una amplia distribución en la mayor parte de la Amazonía, el Cuervo Higuero Cuellopelado Gymnoderus foetidus es poco conocido y la dieta de los polluelos no se ha documentado. En esta nota reporto las primeras observaciones sobre la dieta de pichones de esta cotinga.
