Cuban Tody | ©Mario Oltenau (Cayo Coco, Ciego de Ávila, Cuba)

A small, colorful bird with a distinctly big-headed appearance. The most brightly colored member of the genus, Todus multicolor (Coraciiformes - Todidae), has bright green upperparts with gleaming yellowish-green supercilia, yellow lores, red throat, pinkish flanks, whitish belly, and bright yellow crissum.

This species is the only member of the genus occurring in Cuba, where it is widespread across a diversity of habitats and often abundant where it occurs [source]

Why Todus mexicanus and not Todus portoricensis?

San Pedrito de Puerto Rico/ Puertorrican Tody

***Scientific name: Todus mexicanus***

Up to date investigation about THE question! shows that this name was given by an error of history and location.

But, Is this beauty from México? the answer is NO!

Is an endemic bird from Puerto Rico which means is unique. All research and strong efforts are for protecting and maintaining what is rightfully ours; part of our patrimony and culture.

Todus mexicanus/ Todus portoricensis!!!

… ahhh! that's more like it RIGHT???

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.

The broad-billed tody (Todus subulatus) is one of the two species of tody native to the island of Hispaniola.
It can be identified by its small size, stubby beak, ruby-red throat, and green back.
While its close relative, the narrow-billed tody is more prevalent in the higher altitude areas, the broad-billed tody prefers lower altitude habitats.
To nest, it digs into a river bank, similar to a kingfisher.

Mide de 11 a 12 cm de longitud y pesa en promedio 9,8 g. Es un ave de pequeño tamaño, de pico recto, relativamente corto y ancho. El plumaje de sus partes superiores es verde claro, su garganta roja y el resto de sus partes inferiores es blanquecino con matices grisáceos, amarillos y rosados y con tonos rojizos en los flancos.
Mientras que su pariente el barrancolí picofino prefiere las zonas altas, el barrancolí picogrueso prefiere los hábitats de bosque de montaña muy húmedo a más baja altitud, entre los 435 y 1.700 msnm. Para anidar, excava túneles en los taludes fluviales como un martín pescador.
