Rufous Motmot

The Rufous Motmot is fairly common in the lower growth of moist forests. It inhabits portions of Honduras, Ecudor, Columbia, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. It can be found mainly in lowlands under 2500 ft.

Barbs on a portion of the central tail feathers fall off or are removed leaving "terminal rackets". This bird feeds mainly on large insects and some fruit. They dig a burrow into banks to nest.
