Blue-Crowned Motmot, Volcan Barva

You may be hoping to see a Resplendent Quetzal, but you are more likely to see (and hear) this Blue-crowned Motmot, at least up to about 7000' / 2200m.

Re: vibrant!

Thanks Tim. If you have seen one of these in the wild, then you know vibrant is the right word.

Quetzal

I have seen the quetzal (male and female) but this motmot is incredible!

I got to see a few of these, but this picture is an excellent view of all their colors. Thanks.

Re: great shot!

Thanks for your comment. I was surprised to see this guy calmly sitting there just 15 feet away from me. He hung around long enough to snap off a few shots. Great birding down there!
