Social and interspecific behavior

In Ecuador, Gray-and-gold Warbler is reported to associate less often with mixed species flocks than do other species of Myiothlypis (Ridgely and Greenfield 2001b), although Wiedenfeld et al. (1985) report Gray-and-gold Warbler in Peru associating with Plain Antvireo (Dysithamnus mentalis), Olivaceous Woodcreeper (Sittasomus griseicapillus), Yellow-olive Flycatcher (Tolmomyias sulphurescens), Lesser Greenlet (Hylophilus minor), and Tropical Parula (Parula pitiayumi).


No reports of predation on Gray-and-gold Warbler?
