Cuban tody, Alejandro de Humboldt National Park, Cuba

The tiny Cuban tody can only be found on Cuba and its neighboring islands. Despite their colorful plumage, including that sparkling green head, their size can make them hard to spot. However, they are easy to hear. The soft sound of 'pprreeee-pprreeee' or a short 'tot-tot-tot-tot' will tell you there's a tody somewhere nearby.

The species are found around forests, coasts, dry lowlands, and rivers. The Cuban tody on our homepage is in Alejandro de Humboldt National Park, the Caribbean's biggest and best-preserved forested landscape. The park is also one of the most biologically varied tropical island locations on Earth, with a wide range of endemic plants and animals, so our colorful feathered friend is in good company.
