One more Tody from my recent vacation in Cuba

Cuban Tody (Todus multicolor)
Order: Coraciiformes Family:Todidae:Monotypic

A small, colorful bird with a distinctly big-headed
appearance. The most brightly colored member of the genus, the Cuban Tody has bright green upperparts with gleaming yellowish-green supercilia, yellow lores, red throat, pinkish flanks, whitish belly, and bright yellow crissum. This species is the only member of the genus occurring in Cuba, where it is widespread across a diversity of habitats and often abundant where it occurs. As is the case with other Todus, this species nests in holes burrowed in clay embankments, occasionally in a rotten trunk or even at the entrance to limestone caves.
