dc.description.abstract I studied the foraging behavior of 399 individuals of Swainson&#39;s Warbler (Limnothlypis swainsonii) during the breeding season at more than 70 localities in the southeastern United States. Swainson&#39;s Warbler is a terrestrial dead-leaf specialist and &quot;leaf-lifting&quot; was the principal search/attack maneuver of all observed individuals. Pattering or vibration of feet is an important but previously unrecognized behavior associated with foraging in leaf litter. Observations indicate that leaf litter is a critical component of Swainson&#39;s Warbler habitat on breeding and winter territories and at migratory stopovers. en
