Have you ever heard of a Black Phoebe? Have you ever seen one? Well, in case you haven’t Black Phoebes are insectivores, flycatchers. Their colors are black and white. Their stomachs are white, while the rest of their body is black. Black Phoebes make their nests on walls, overhangs, cliffs, and even bridges! They build cup shaped nests. Often, they sit on low branches or posts, because they like to fly to another low perch, so that then on the way back they can catch insects to give to their young.
I hope you learned about Black Phoebes from this article and if you want to learn more about birds, animals, and plants, you have to wait for another article.
