The puffbird is a relative of the woodpecker. There are approximately 30 species of
puffbird. They have stout bodies, solid bills and soft, fluffy plumage. In most species of
puffbird the plumage is mottled brown or grey. They range in size, from quite small, like
that of the common sparrow, to quite large, like that of the jay. They are found in forests,
mountains and low lying areas. Three species of puffbird are found in Panama. The remainder
find suitable habitat in the Amazon valley.
