The Puerto Rican Tody is a tody endemic to Puerto Rico island.It is commonly known as “San Pedrito” (“Little Saint Peter”). The Puerto Rican Tody is green with yellow flanks, a bright yellowish-white belly, a red throat and lower mandible, and a long beak. It is the smallest representative of the order Coraciiformes, with an average body length of 11 cm and weight of 5 to 6 g. Males and females can be distinguished by the coloration of their eyes; males have gray eyes whereas females’ eyes are white. Todies are hard to spot but are easily identifiable by the loud, nasal “beep” they make. Also known as papagayo, they make their nests on the faces of steep, cut ground (e.g., in road cuts created during road construction) or hillsides.
