Abstract: Several bird species feed on a variety of external parasites and epibionts, organic debris, dead and wounded tissue, clots and blood, and secretions from the body of other vertebrates (hosts or clients). We present an overview of so called cleaner birds from the Neotropics based on field records, literature, and photo survey. We found that 33 bird species in 16 families practice cleaning even if some of them do so very occasionally. The birds range from the Galápagos ground finch Geospiza fuliginosa to the wid… Show more

“…Associações de mutualismo podem ser exemplificadas pelo pica-boi Buphagus erythrorynchus que apanha carrapatos em ungulados silvestres e domésticos (Weeks, 2000;Craig, 2009;Sazima, I., 2011). Entretanto, a mesma espécie de pica-boi frequentemente retira sangue das feridas dos ungulados com os quais se associa e, neste caso, age como semiparasita (Weeks, 2000), uma função dupla também registrada para o gavião Milvago chimachima e diversas aves consideradas limpadoras (Sazima, I. & Sazima, C., 2010a;Sazima, C. et al, 2012).…”

“…Sometimes, however, mammals also benefit from interactions with birds. A well-known example is "cleaner birds", where mammals profit from the removal of ectoparasites, dead tissue and organic debris (Sazima & Sazima 2010), although this is not the only instance of an avianmammalian relationship in which both parties benefit. In other observed occurrences, some birds that co-feed with mammals in turn help mammals detect potential predators, resulting in a mutualistic relationship (Rasa 1983).…”

“…Anecdotal evidence, however, indicates relationships, of at least a commensal nature, between birds and mammals to be present in tropical rainforests (e.g., Laman et al 1997;Ruggiero & Eves 1998;Long & Collar 2002;Sazima Abstract: We use data from motion-activated remote cameras to document a commensal, and possibly mutualistic, relationship between Bornean Ground Cuckoos and Bearded Pigs in the rainforests of Kalimantan, Indonesia. We hypothesise that birds benefiting from symbiotic relationships may suffer indirect detrimental effects from hunting that targets large mammals in tropical rainforests.…”
