Rufous-tailed Jacamar

The Rufous-tailed Jacamar (Galbula ruficauda) is a near-passerine bird which breeds in the tropical New World in southern Mexico, Central America and South America as far south as southern Brazil and Ecuador.

The jacamars are elegant brightly coloured birds with long bills and tails. The Rufous-tailed Jacamar is typically 25 centimetres (10 in) long with a 5 centimetres (2 in) long black bill. This bird is metallic green above, and the underparts are mainly orange, including the undertail, but there is a green breast band.

This insectivore hunts from a perch, sitting with its bill tilted up, then flying out to catch flying insects.
