Printable Coloring and Information Page on the Phainopepla.
Although the Phainopepla is a waxed wing flycatcher, it primary diet consists of mistletoe berries, and it lives in habitats where mistletoe thrives, including the desert wash. It does eat other berries, including juniper and grapes, and it will also eat insects. The name Phainopepla is Greek, meaning "Silky Robe" describing the shining black coat of the male. In addition to its silky robe and crest, this bird is easily distinguished by its red eyes.
