- 1.A Bucco grandis (Puffbird). 1.B Capito maculatus (Barbet). Capito is a genus of birds in the Capitonidae family. They are found in humid forests in South America, with a single species extending into eastern Panama. Slightly larger than the members of the genus Eubucco, members of the genus Capito are all sexually dimorphic and thickset, and have stubby pale bills that often are tipped black. With the exception of the somewhat aberrant Scarlet-crowned Barbet, black, red, orange, yellow and white are the dominating colours in their plumage, and males have at least partially black backs. Typically seen in singly or in pairs, they are primarily frugivorous, but also take arthropods.1.C Lypornix leucops (Mourning bird) Original chromolithographs on a vellin type paper.
