Food Capture and Consumption
Madge et al. (2) wrote that this species forages throughout the day in small groups of 5–6, which scratch through fallen leaves and plant matter, picking up disturbed animal items and ‘pecking at fallen fruit’. Group feeding is most efficient and beneficial when leaf litter is as its deepest; on the Thai-Malay Peninsula, this is between September and December, when such groups are more frequently encountered (1). May be fairly mobile within a rather limited defined area, using different parts every few days.
