Abstract: Reports of ornithomycological interactions are scattered across multiple bird families, including: Acanthizidae, Alaudidae, Casuariidae, Corvidae, Dromaiidae, Glareolidae, Megapodiidae, Petroicidae, Prunellidae, Psittaculidae, Strigopidae, and Upupidae, (Simpson 1998; Simpson 2000; Beever & Lebel 2014). These records document fungi as food for birds ranging from Cassowaries to Siberian Jays; in some cases, fungi may comprise a seasonally significant portion of birds' diets (Andreev 1978; Alsheikh & Trappe 1983; Simpson 1998; Medway 2000; Doerr & Doerr 2002; Beever & Lebel 2014).
