    The green bunglebird (Xenosornis veridigenalis) is an enigmatic member of an enigmatic family.  One of the last remaining North American laurasiavians, the bunglebird feeds exclusively upon fruits and nuts.  Locally common in the marshes of Florida and parts of Louisiana, this bird is reluctant flyer, prefering to hitch its way along stout branches, ripping apart the tough-skinned fruits with its powerful beak.

    Bunglebirds nest in large, carefully constructed nests high above the forest floor.
