Ancestor:Descendants:

The worm phlyer split from its ancestor, the long-beaked phlyer. It has specialized to eat pollenivore worms. It can catch them in its grooved beak and fly very quickly to snatch them. They will stay in flocks and sleep and raise young in the trees. They gather up floral fibers to make the round nests. They give birth to 2 to 3 babies and their parents will take turns bringing them food until they can fly on their own. Usually, this species mates for life and males will do elaborate courting displays in the air, showing off their bright colors. Like their ancestors they "toot" to each other using their butt-nostrils.
