This video segment from Outdoor Nevada examines a bird called the Phainopepla and its symbiotic relationship with the mistletoe plant. In a mutually symbiotic relationship, both organisms benefit from their interaction. In this case, the Phainopepla subsists principally on mistletoe berries, and the mistletoe benefits from the dispersal of seeds deposited in the bird's droppings. The Phainopepla's migration pattern is linked to the availability of mistletoe berries, which ripen in southwestern desert areas during the fall. In the spring, after the birds hatch their eggs in clumps of mistletoe, they leave the desert until the following fall.
