Baryphthengus martii (Rufous Motmot)

Wikipedia Abstract

The rufous motmot (Baryphthengus martii) is a near-passerine bird which is a resident breeder in rain forests from northeastern Honduras south to western Ecuador, northeastern Bolivia, and southwestern Brazil. This is a bird of tall wet forest and second growth. It nests in a 4–5 m (13–16 ft) long tunnel in a bank or the side of a mammal burrow. The clutch size and eggs are undescribed. The binomial commemorates the German botanist and explorer Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius.
