We report the Turquoise-browed Motmot (Eumomota superciliosa) feeding in the evening on insects attracted to artificial lights. This behavior has been observed in few diurnal bird species, and has not been reported previously for the family Momotidae. Although more than one motmot engaged in this behavior at one site in El Salvador, and feeding success appeared favorable, we have not observed the behavior at other sites in El Salvador, suggesting that the behavior has not spread through the population.
