An Observation of a Summer Tanager Attempting to eat an Anolis Lizard
Biological, Environmental, and Earth Sciences
A Summer Tanager (Piranga rubra) was observed attempting to eat an anole (Anolis carolinensis) at a migratory stopover site. The event may reflect the importance of behavioral plasticity during migration, but might also be the result of a simple stimulus-response mechanism.
