A small bird of the tyrant flycatcher family with a large head and strong bill, found mainly in Central and South America.
- Genus Pachyramphus, family Tyrannidae: several species
- Here such rare bird species as the gray hawk, northern beardless-tyrannulet, rose-throated becard, thick-billed kingbird, and green kingfisher can be seen, along with about 300 other species.
- I also did new paintings of the rose-throated becard on page 303.
