Abstract

We studied White-throated Jacamars (Brachygalba albogularis) at Manu National Park, Peru, finding a mean population density of 0.8 groups per km of suitable streamside habitat, and taking the first recordings of its song. Observations at nests provided the first evidence of cooperative breeding in the genus Brachygalba, as well as information on foraging tactics, prey selection, and provisioning behavior.
