Cuban Tody

About the Cuban Tody

The Cuban Tody is a very small species of bird found in Cuba and outlying islands. This colorful little cutie has a large-headed appearance which adds to its cuteness factor.

Cuban Todies are predominantly insectivorous. They also feed on small lizards and fruits. They forage in trees and scrub, and take insects on the wing as well as finding prey on or under leaves.

Cuban Todies nest in clay embankments, where they burrow a hole or tunnel and line the inside with lichens, feathers, and other natural materials. They may also nest in rotten tree trunks or at cave entrances.
