Jamaican Tody

Small and rounded, with a plump body but small feet, this is a hunter that sits and waits for prey. It watches from an exposed perch and darts out to catch passing insects or snatch them from the undersides of overhanging leaves. The call is a short "cherek." Todies live singly or in pairs, and defend territories on wooded hillsides.
