Foraging studies on animals are quite astonishing even as in birds to understand their behavior in their own community. Evaluations are made on the Southeast Asian rainforest bird family, the babblers (Timaliidae), had been evaluated in Sarawak on foraging behavior of seven different morphologies and behavior identical sympatric species (Cyanoderma erythropterum, C. rufifrons, Stachyris maculata, S. cigricollis, S. poliocephala, Macronus ptilosus, and M. gularis) in three different habitats defined by the type of forest: (1) mixed dipterocarp forest with patches of kerangas forest, (2) limestone forest and (3) mixed dipterocarp forest with patches of plantations. Not all species are sighted in the habitat, but out of the seven sympatric species, enough information is obtained for only three of the species. C. erythroptenam, M. gularis and S. maculata can be found around the canopy foraging among dead, suspended and live leaf and woods with different foraging heights.
