Quetzal, the most beautiful.  Unfortunately, these striking birds are threatened in Guatemala and elsewhere throughout their range. They are sometimes trapped for captivity or killed, but their primary threat is the disappearance of their tropical forest homes.

The Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno) is a bird in the trogon family. It is found from southern Mexico to western Panama (unlike the other quetzals of the genus Pharomachrus, which are found in South America and eastern Panama).

This is the Resplendent Quetzal. The Resplendent Quetzal was considered sacred to the Mayans - so sacred, in fact, that the punishment for killing a Quetzal was death. The cutest thing ever
