Russet-throated Puffbird in Barranquilla

This afternoon on my way back to my hotel I took a shortcut through a small park and playground surrounded by busy streets and businesses. I chose a route under the few trees that were there, both for shade from the blistering sun, and because there might be some birds there. At first I found only a few Greyish Saltators feeding, but as I was about to leave, another bird arrived, and I immediately knew I'd never seen it before. It stayed just long enough for me to grab a few shots, and then back in my room with the help of the resources on the internet, I identified it as a Russet-throated Puffbird.
