Impact DescriptionRostrhamus sociabilis plumbeus feeding on Pomacea maculata spent less time in flight per day than those feeding on Pomacea paludosa. However, prey handeling times were increased and consumption rates were 3-4 times longer for juvinile Rostrhamus sociabilis plumbeus feeding on Pomacea maculata. This suggests a shift in foraging behavior, activity pattern, and energetics.
