Vamos a la playa. (Piaya cayana) (y). A wonderful close-up of this chestnut coloured bird.
Wiki, "forage peacefully alongside small mammals".
 
Beautiful shot of this beautiful bird, Stanley. It's a lovely species.

Sometimes I would cross path with them on my walks on the trails and they don't seem to be too scared of people (which is not a great trait for an animal to have sadly), but for us birders, it's an obvious plus whenever we see a bird that is like that.

Don't know if your experiences with them were similar.
