Rufous-tailed Jacamar
I believe this is a female.

She had just caught a moth and was shaking it a bit. You can see the moth particles.

I love these little guys. It's awesome watching them hunt. Once they lock on to a prey, their head moves like a robot locked on a target.

There are plenty of them in this area that I go birding, but almost always on deep vegetation areas with poor light. You hear them way more often than you see them.
