This interesting bird eats mostly insects but also likes berries and seeds. Aside from the insects I could go for their diet. That is about what I like nowadays! =) Fun stuff. They are approximately 7.6 – 8.8 inches (19-22cm) as fully grown birds. They prefer a tropical climate and only accidentally show up in Florida. This classifies them as a “vagrant bird” (a term birders use to refer to birds that come accidentally or by chance to a location rather than normal migration patterns).

I found this bird from Luke Dempsey’s book, “A Supremely Bad Idea: Three Mad Birder’s and Their Quest To See It All.”
