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).
Resplendent Quetzal ~ Bird of Paradise ,from the Rain Forests of Costa Rica. The Quetzal bird is considered so valuable that the term is also used as the "currency" of Guatemala! I was so impressed by that!
