I was thinking Eastern Towhee, but that is not correct... I'm not sure....:?

Not a tohee - all the tohees have a white belly. The striped undertail really has me stumpted! Anyone?

Much further south.... It's a Violaceous Trogon
Thought it was the white tailed Trogan but the Violaceous is a smaller bird and has the finer barring on its tail.

Great ID, KEM!! Never saw this bird before. So NHL, where is N-39°11.74 W-77°14.28? Please don't make me look it up. I wonder how far off course this little bird was. ?

It wasn't the bird fault... I was actually off course in the rain forest of Trinidad/Tobago! :lol: :-) :G

Thank you KEM for the ID
