Photographer's Note

Costa Rica has a huge number of bird species for its area. About 600 species are resident, with most of the other regular visitors being winter migrants from North America.

This is slaty-tailed trogon. It breeds in lowlands from southeastern Mexico south through Central America, to Colombia. It is a resident of the canopy and higher levels of damp tropical forests, but comes lower in adjacent semi-open areas. Slaty-tailed trogons feed on insects and fruit.
