Legend

A stacked bar chart with 18 species on the horizontal axis and number of displacements on the vertical axis. For each species, the stack bar consists of two colors: orange is the number of displacements initiated against their own species and light blue is the number of displacements initiated against another species. The clay-colored thrush initiated the most displacements, 886 against its own species and 156 against other species. The thick-billed euphonia is the next species with the most displacements initiated (116 against its own species and 3 against other species) with all other species initiating less than 60 in total. Most other species, besides the clay-colored thrush and thick-billed euphonia initiated more displacements against other species compared to their own.

Reading the Graph: How do species compare in who they are targeting in their displacements? Which species interact more often with other species? Which species interact more often with their own species? Find out and see if you notice any other patterns by simplifying the graph and clicking on the checked boxes under “Choose What To Display.”

Notes: For each species, the orange bars refer to the total number of displacements initiated against their own species and light blue bars refer to the number of displacements initiated against different species. There are nine species that were present in the video clips, but are not included in the visualizations because they were not recorded as participating in displacements: Bananaquit, Black-chested Jay, Collared Aracari, Palm Tanager, Red-crowned Ant-Tanager, Red-legged Honeycreeper, Spot-crowned Barbet, Tennessee Warbler, White-lined Tanager.
