The Xenops is moving in all directions on tree trunks. It is searching under the bark for beetles and larvae to eat. It swiftly pulls them out and gobbles them down. Charlotte wanted to show this very special behavior of theirs.
Xavier the Xenops is part of a series of birds from the artist's book "ABC with birds".
