White-tailed Trogon

This relatively large species is about 11 in and weighs about 3 oz . Like most trogons it has distinctive male and female plumages, with soft colourful feathers. The head and upper breast of the male are dark blue , and the back is green, becoming bluer on the rump. The lower underparts are orange yellow. The wings are black, vermiculated with white. In the Amazonian White-tailed Trogon the undertail has a black centre, broadly edged with white, but in the Western White-tailed Trogon the undertail is almost entirely white. The complete eye-ring is pale bluish.

took the photos of the White-tailed Trogons below as they sat shivering in the drizzle and occasionally disconsolately fluttered up into the foliage looking for the virtually non-existent insects…(in fact, there were a few around as we did see one beautiful moth the size of a small bat that came hurtling out of the darkness, swooped round a few times, and dived straight into the wood fire the staff were cooking the evening meal on - a shame as by the time we reacted to save it all that was More

The White-tailed Trogon is found in Ecuador and Columbia. It is one of the larger species in the family and can measure almost a foot in length. Although among the most beautiful birds on the planet, trogons tend to be somewhat reclusive – and not seen very often at all. There is not known about their biology but they are popular with birdwatchers. There is a small ecotourism industry based around watching them. More
