Diet and Foraging


There are no published records of prey items taken by Yellow-breasted Antpitta. This species was, however, one of the first species trained to come to worm-feeding stations by Sr. Angel Paz in northwestern Ecuador (Woods et al. 2011). As with other species of Grallaria, worms most likely are an important part of their diet.
