Cuban Tody

Todies are a family of birds restricted to the Caribbean, with five species. They’re related to kingfishers, bee-eaters and rollers, so as you’d expect, they’re extremely colorful, real eye-poppers.

Cuban Tody was high on my wanted list, and we saw them fairly commonly in a variety of habitats across the island. They’re quirky little characters, often quite tame, but usually in dark cover and difficult to photograph (for me, at least).

I didn’t quite get the photo I wanted, but these aren’t too bad, considering the idiot wielding the camera…
