Its natural habitats are subtropical and tropical moist lowland forests and heavily degraded former forest. Order: Piciformes, Family: Bucconidae, Species: Notharchus tectus (Boddaert, 1783)

Notharchus tectus
The Pied Puffbird has a widespread but rather discontinuous distribution, from the Caribbean slope of Costa Rica to northwest Ecuador (which population is sometimes treated specifically), then in the Guianas across northern Amazonia to eastern Peru, and in eastern Bolivia and western Brazil, as well as in northeast Brazil around the mouth of the Amazon and southwards. This is a small-sized, mainly black-and-white puffbird; its plumage recalls that of the substantially larger Guianan Puffbird (Notharchus macrorhynchos), but has a narrow white supercilium, a narrower breast band, and white on the scapulars. The Pied Puffbird is exclusively lowland in its distribution, being recorded below 1000 m, and is found in tropical evergreen forest, tall second growth, clearings and plantations, and even mangrove, among other wooded habitats. Declines have been reported in some areas of the species’ range, presumably in response to ongoing deforestation.
