The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; (Proverbs 30:25 KJV)

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest. (Proverbs 6:6-8 KJV)

Last week’s Sunday Inspiration featured the “first four bird families, taxonomically, in the Passeriformes Order (Songbirds)” This week we will continue with the next three families. They all have “ant” birds in them; Antshrikes, Antwrens, Antbirds, Antthrushes and Antpittas.. The Thamnophilidae – Antbirds family does have a few Bare-eyes.

  1. this is phenomenal. my fave the Giant Antpitta. With so many ants in the world, this many ant birds makes perfect sense. Do any of them eat Fire Ants though, I wonder. We need them here in FL!! Thanks for the great slideshow.
