Abstract:From October to December, 2014, and March to May, 2015, the feeding niche of Zosterops japonicus between spring and winter was investigated in Yizhou city, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The number, feeding time, food types and foraging behavior data including feeding height, horizontal feeding position and feeding direction of Z. japonicus were recorded. The results showed that Z. japonicus were omnivorous, which mainly fed on leaves and fruits and shortly fed on insect or petal. The results of food niche breadth and overlap results suggested that the niche overlap was 13.86 in spring and 11.75 in winter, respectively; the niche overlap was 0.903 between spring and winter. Additionally, most of feeding accident happened during 06:00 to 09:00 in spring, which occupied 42.93% of the total feeding frequency. However, most of feeding accident happened during 09:00 to 12:00 in winter, which occupied 38.04% of the total feeding frequency. The feeding time and feeding height were significantly differed (P<0.05) while the horizontal feeding position and feeding direction had no significant difference (P>0.05) between spring and winter.
