Description of the Bird
This bird was sparrow-sized about 6-7 inches in length. It was perched on a barbed wire fence and was sallying out to catch insects. Then it would return to the same perch. The bird was entirely black except for a starkly contrasting white belly and undertail. It had a black head, breast, neck, back, tail and feet. Eye and bill were black. I watched the bird and took photographs for about 15 minutes.
