Coming in at # 3 on my favorite tropical birds series is the Andean Cock of the Rock, also known as the Tunki, they are the national Bird of Peru and, can mostly be found in the cloud forest of the Andes mountains, they eat fruit, insects, amphibians, reptiles and, mice. Another interesting note is they get about 13 inches in length and, the males are show offs, always putting on extravagant displays for females, they have nothing to do with nesting duties or the babies though. Some information verified at Wikipedia. Photo is from Wikipedia, it's the Tunki.
