White-necked Puffbird

Notharchus hyperrhynchus (Bucco macrorhynchos)


This is one of the largest, and most widespread members of the puffbird family, and frequents the forest canopy from southern Mexico south through the Amazon, in CR we see it in rainforest and gallery forest, nesting in termites nest due the few old trees where they should build their nest, they feed in large insects , back in 1995, I saw one of then hunting per a hummingbird.
