Galbula ruficauda

No: Rusthalejakamar Eng: Rufous-tailed Jacamar

Dear All, 
Brazil - fantastic. I could continue for several years just with my Brazilian photos … 
Brazil has 1901 _known_ species (new appear regularly), compared e.g. to Australia 898, 
Italy 527 and Norway 473.

This Jacamar was seen in the wood behind University of Sao Carlos (State of Sao Paulo).
Length (including tail and beak): 22cm. Eats: insects, butterflies etc, see last photo.
