Birds Caught in Spider Webs: A Synthesis of Patterns

Daniel M. Brooks
2012 The Wilson Journal of Ornithology  
Results of queries through public avian list-servers and a thorough literature search formed a data base to synthesize patterns of birds trapped in spider webs.  ...  Thirty cases of birds were entrapped without human intervention: 22 died and eight not wrapped in silk freed themselves. Those wrapped in silk invariably died unless freed by a human observer.  ...  The data synthesized to examine the reported patterns would not have been possible without the careful records of others, including amateur naturalists who published their field notes.  ...

Webs with more decorations suffered increased numbers of wasp attacks.  ...  We calculated colour contrasts of spiders against prey pellets and eggsacs and recorded predators' responses to spiders on webs in the field.  ...  On Orchid Island female C. mulmeinensis on average incorporated three to four eggsacs on the webs, and some even placed as many as 11 (L. Tseng, unpublished data).  ...
