May 3, 2015 – Cuban Tody (Todus multicolor)

Requested by: taylorrbranham

These small birds are found in a variety of habitats in Cuba. They eat insects, spiders and some fruit and small lizards, sometimes catching insects in the air. Often traveling in pairs or small family groups, they are quite territorial. They nest in burrows in clay banks, rotten tree trunks, or near the entrance of limestone caves. Both parents incubate the eggs and care for the chicks.
