Puffbirds: Bucconidae - Habitat

found forest birds trees

Puffbirds are found from dry to humid forests, lowlands, open woodlands, and wooded savannas (flat grasslands). They are not often found within the deep parts of the forest. The birds are usually found in areas below 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) in elevation, but some species are found in areas that rise up to 9,500 feet (2,900 meters). Puffbirds are found mainly in northern South America, particularly in the area surrounding the Amazon River. Most birds are found around the forest edges, in areas where trees have fallen, along streams and lakes, and inside clearings. They especially like locations where plenty of perches are available and many vines hang down from the trees.
