This trogon was spotted from the veranda in the late afternoon. It is guessed to be a white-tailed rather than the similar Violaceous by the pale blue eye-ring. A female, spotted in some bamboos roadside at high elevation. This wider shot shows the remarkable tail of the motmot. Click on the photo to see the complete image.
