Comments: Insectivorous. Forages on ground in thick brush and flies into air to catch insects; both parents seen carrying caterpillars to young (Terres 1980). Will probe, glean, hover, and hang upside down to catch insects (Martin and Olson, in press). During breeding season in Arizona, mainly take caterpillars, also spiders, carpenter ants, stink bugs, weevils (Martin and Olson, in press).
