During the breeding season the territories of the Black Phoebe, Western Wood Pewee, and Western Flycatcher overlapped, and the species showed little sign of interspecific aggression. Potential competition among these flycatchers appears to be reduced by /// interspecific differences in nest site selection, nest height, breeding season, foraging tactics, and the choice of perch sites. It is suggested that the Black Phoebe is the most versatile of the three species, and it is the only one to feed on the ground.
