Jamaican Tody

Found only in Jamaica, the Jamaican Tody is a small and colourful bird, predominantly green above, with a red throat and yellow underparts, with some pink on the sides. It has a large head and a long, flat bill. It perches on small branches, with its bills unturned and, like its Cuban relative , takes insects, larvae, and fruit. The Jamaican Tody nests in burrows, which it excavates in muddy banks or rotten wood.

that the Jamaican Tody seldom calls in the non-breeding season (August to November); they give simple, unmusical buzzing notes, beeps, and guttural rattles, puffing their throats out with every call. Their wings produce a "strange, whirring rattle", though mostly when courting or defending territory in the Puerto Rican Tody. Diet - They eat small prey such as insects and lizards. More

The Jamaican Tody, only three inches long from the top of its head to the end of its tiny tail, is not hard to find if you look in the correct habitat in forested parts of Jamaica. And if you ask me, it's got to be the cutest little bird in the world. I took this picture at dusk, when it was almost too dark to see any color. But you can still get a sense of how bright are this bird's green and red feathers. More

The tiny, cute, exquisite endemic Jamaican Tody, the type species of tody, is perhaps rather similar to its cogeners from elsewhere in the Caribbean, but none the less handsome for it. This teeny (only the same length as a Goldcrest, but with a long bill and tail!) coraciiform is probably my favourite Jamaican bird. More
