Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Altered habitat: plantation
Protection: forest reserve
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "mainly a plantation of several exotic species, such as Pinus sp., Eucalyptus sp., Cupressus spp., and Grevillea robusta. The latter is the dominant species"
Life forms: birds
Sampling methods: no design, mist nets
Sample size: 165
Years: 2011
Days: 3
Seasons: wet or monsoon
Nets or traps: 15

Sampling comments: the study used "mist nets (12 m, 16 mm mesh, four tier)... during the hot season (February 2011) and cold season (July 2011). During each season 15 mist nets were erected forming a T-shaped net line for 36 daylight hours and were operated from dawn (6:00) to dusk (18:00) for three consecutive days. The nets were located more than 100 m from the forest edge"
