A cute little bird with a rather large head, long bill, and short tail, all combining to create a profile shared only by the Broad-billed Tody.
The narrow-billed tody (Todus angustirostris) looks like a typical tody, being a small chunky bird with a short tail. Only weighing in at 7.5 grams (0.26 oz), this today has bright green upperparts and head with a carmine red chin and throat separated by mallar stripe.
The sides of the neck and breast are dark gray while the rest of the breast and belly area is white. The flanks are pinkish to red while the upper wings are bright green with the underwing area being yellowish.
