Small birds with a white belly and dark blue/black back tinged with a burnt orange/reddish color that matched the color of its chin. These birds made a few quiet chirps, but otherwise lazed about.
Oddly enough these birds showed up on a sailboat around half way into a 36 hour run from Panama to Colombia. There was no land in sight. We never raised the sails, so they could have been hiding in the folds the whole time, but they seemed pretty tired when we first noticed them so our guess was they had been on the open sea. We fed them some crackers and eventually one guy was able to coax one onto his hand.
