#tbt So this Thursday’s treat is another excerpt from my alphabet book I made for my senior thesis. So while digging and researching for animals for each letter of the alphabet, X was the hardest to find anything for. This lovely bird is called a Xenops, it’s one of the only animals that start with the letter X. They are very small birds with a long feathered tail. They mostly live in Mexico, Central and South America. They belong to the oven bird family. They love to eat insects, ants and flowers. I hope you enjoyed your animal lesson for the day!
