    • Thomisids are among the favourite prey of insectivorous birds and other invertebrates.
    • Small insectivorous passerines, which typically feed the nestlings with small food items at a very high rate, are ideal as model species because limitations in food supply are likely to have an immediate effect on nestling hunger.
    • Almost all Mesozoic mammals were insectivorous.
    • Despite numerous other studies demonstrating the importance of insectivorous birds to insect herbivore densities, bird exclusion resulted in relatively weak effects on the arthropod community on our saplings.
    • Insectivores are fairly common because insects are very common but the small size and low nutrient value of insects means that most insectivorous mammals are small, except the anteaters.
    • Contrary to popular belief, bats are not helpless on the ground or in the water, and some insectivorous species feed on ground-dwelling insects as much or more than they feed on insects captured in flight.
    • Omnivorous, herbivorous, and insectivorous species were selected for study of plant chemical discrimination to facilitate comparisons between diet and chemosensory responses in relation to iguanian phylogeny.
    • These bats are strictly insectivorous and may be further limited in diet to moths and butterflies.
    • These bats are primarily insectivorous, and most hawk insects in flight, often using their wings like tennis rackets and swatting the insects into the tail membrane.
    • The ancestral amniotes were small animals, superficially resembling primitive, insectivorous lizards.
    • Herbivorous, granivorous and insectivorous birds have a highly specialized, muscular gizzard with an inner lining of hard cuticle.
    • Like most insectivorous bats, the New Zealand short-tailed bat hunts insects in the air by using echolocation.
    • This suggests that these animals were insectivorous or carnivorous.
    • The new find is thought to belong to a group of small, mainly insectivorous birds called white eyes, which are related to warblers.
    • Vireos are small, primarily insectivorous passerines that live in forested or scrub habitats.
    • The barn swallow is a semicolonial, aerially insectivorous passerine.
    • All species are insectivorous, hawking insects in flight.
    • No man's hand was turned against it and it cannot be said that its food supplies have vanished, since most other similarly insectivorous birds remain common.
    • These bats are primarily insectivorous (although they have been observed to eat fruit on occasion) and hawk insects in flight.
    • Barn swallows are small insectivorous passerines that feed on the wing.
