The Broad-billed Tody (Todus subulatus) is one of the two species of tody native to the island of Hispaniola. It can be identified by its small size, stubby beak, ruby-red throat, and green back. The Broad-billed Tody prefers lower altitude habitats. To nest, it digs into a river bank, similar to a kingfisher.What a dynamic place the Island of Hispaniola is , Hooked up with my friend Dax, superb photographer , and guide, as we had a wonderful four days of extreme shooting. Extremely fast birds, deep within the jungle, and low light. to boot.... iwas so pumped to finally capture the TODY, as well to find a great setting with the back & side lighting... Stay tuned for a series to follow, and a blog as well. We had a very productive time, as we plan for a Hispaniola Photo Tour Late 2014...Click on Image To darken BKG,
