Resplendent Quetzal (4) (Near-threatened)
Dec 28 2008
Onthe grounds of the hotel El Establo in Monteverde there was a particular tree on top of a long hill where the Quetzal could be seen. This was in the rain forest and under the canopy gloom, focusing was difficult for the camera. Note that in direct sun the bird at times appeared to be blue rather than green. Doesn't look real !
