Behavior

Behavior

Yellow-browed Tody-Flycatcher primarily forages in the canopy of tall forest, where it is inconspicuous other than by its Vocalizations (Hilty and Brown 1986, Ridgely and Green field 2001a). The foraging behavior is similar to that of other members of the genus (Fitzpatrick 1980), making short sallies from a perch to capture prey on adjacent leaves or twigs.

Territoriality

Little information. At one site in southeastern Peru, the mean territory size was estimated at 7 ha (n = 3), with a density of 3.5 pairs/100 ha (Terborgh et al. 1990).

Sexual Behavior

Undescribed; presumably Yellow-browed Tody-Flycatcher is at least socially monogamous.

Social and interspecific behavior

Yellow-browed Tody-Flycatcher usually is solitary or in pairs, and does not associate with mixed species flocks (Hilty and Brown 1986, Ridgely and Greenfield 2001a).

Predation

There are no reports of predation on Yellow-browed Tody-Flycatcher?
