Abstract: Mist-netted birds were examined for evidence of frugivory on honeysuckle (Lonicera Maackii and L. xylosteum) by checking their feces for seeds. One-hundred-fifteen individuals of 26 species were examined. Nine of these species showed evidence of frugivory but only 21 of 82 individuals were frugivorous. Berries of L. Maackii were analyzed for food quality by determining carbon:nitrogen ratios and total percent lipid for whole berries. Results of these analyses showed the berries to be low in both protein and lipid and are therefore a poor energy source.
