Rufous Necked Puffbird
March 13, 2012
Rufous-necked Puffbird (Malacoptila rufa): This puffy insect-eater from the southern Amazon Basin will sit very still on a perch waiting for larger flying insects to come by and then sally out and grab them with its heavy bill. Puffbirds nest in tunnels in earthen banks in the forest.
