Rose Throated Becard

These pictures were taken on January 10th, 2010 at Bentsen Rio Grande Valley State Park, Mission Texas. This is a fairly rare bird but does show up occassionally in Southern Arizona and in the Rio Grande Valley of Southern Texas. His main diet is insects but also eats insect larvae, fruits and berries. He doesn't normally come to feeders but will eat peanut butter.
