Todus angustirostris (Coraciiformes - Todidae) is a neotropical, small, short-tailed, chunky bird, with bright colors and a long, flattened bill. It is endemic to Hispaniola, which is the only island on which more than a single species of tody occurs: the Narrow-billed Tody tends to occur at higher elevations on the island, above 700 m, while the lowlands of Hispaniola are occupied by the Broad-billed Tody (Todus subulatus) [source].
