Nets or traps: 10
Sampling comments: "Eight expeditions were carried out on each remnant from October 2011 to September 2012, always covering different portions. We installed ten mist nets (12 × 3 m, five shelves, 19 mm mesh) to capture birds in the forest understory from 05:00 to 11:00 for two consecutive days on each visit... The mist nets were installed as line clusters of five in the first 60 m from the forest edge and after 180 m, in the forest interior. The total mist-net effort was 2, 880h"
