  1. The models relate behavioral variables of individual flock members to the space use of the entire flock. “veg” is the vegetation density, “at” is the attack rate, and “vig” is the vigilance rate. DTAN stands for Dusky-throated Antshrike, BSAN stands for Bluish-slate Antshrike, WFAN stands for White-flanked Antwren, and LWAN stands for Long-winged Antwren. We define ΔAIC as the minimum AIC subtracted from the AIC of the corresponding model; K is the number of included parameters; and w is the normalized model likelihood [11]
