Bucco Macrorhynchus (Notharchus macrorhynchus)
Canopy bird, looks a little like a Kingfisher, it feeds on large insects and in the canopy areas I have seen it hunting for hummingbirds.
Dry forest , Rainforest.
Back in 1995 and 1996, I was so lucky to do research up in the canopy, and my neighbor ( one tree to my left) was doing research on this birds, he invited me to his tree 50 meters up in the canopy to see something new for him as well as a surprise for me; we saw this birds, more than ones, hunting for hummingbirds, I remember a crowned woodnymph, and a white necked Jacobin.....the were eating by this birds.,
I didn't know anything went after Hummingbirds!
