Abstract

We report new food items for six species of Costa Rican birds. This report includes the first egg predation observed for Hoffman's Woodpecker (Melanerpes hoffmannii), the first vertebrate recorded in the diet of Sooty Thrush (Turdus nigrescens), and records for Groove-billed Ani (Crotophaga sulcirostris), Black-and-white Owl (Strix nigrolineata), Blue-crowned Motmot (Momotus momota), and Clay-colored Thrush (Turdus grayi).
