Capped Wheatear Oenanthe pileata breeding in association with Brant's Whistling Rat Parotomys brantsii
This short note reports an observation of Capped Wheatears Oenanthe pileata breeding in burrows made by Brant's Whistling Rat Parotomys brantsii. It points out that there is no record of the rodent species associated with the Capped Wheatear or whether there are preferred rodents. It also points out that there are large areas where the ranges of Capped Wheatears and Ant-eating Chats Myrmecocichla formicivore overlap. The latter species also breeds in association with mammals. There are possibilities of joint studies.
