Data for: The formation of “mega‐flocks” depends on vegetation structure in montane coniferous forests of Taiwan

Chun-Chieh Liao, Tzung-Su Ding & Chao-Chieh Chen
A mixed-species bird flock is a social assemblage where two or more bird species are moving together while foraging and might benefit from increased foraging efficiency and antipredator vigilance. A “mega-flock,” which includes flocking species from different vegetation layers, often exhibits high species diversity. Mechanisms for the formation of mega-flocks have not yet been explored. In this study, we evaluated the influence of vegetation structure and bird species diversity/richness in driving the occurrence of mega-flocks....
