Quetzal Upgrade...ECUADOR (18 June)

A thrilling day on the trails brought me many of Tandayapa's most special birds, although before we get to that story here is an "upgrade" I enjoyed today. After last weeks close up of a female Golden-headed Quetzal emerging from its nest cavity, today I was treated to the gem-like male poking his head out of the hole...it may not have the extravagant tail of Costa Rica's celebrity quetzal (the resplendent), although there's nothing wrong with the rest of it!

More to come from a top notch Tandayapa day today...

This is a really lovely bird, yet I especially am fasciated by the gorgeous bird in your banner, what a magnificent image, stark cold and showing off the subject beautifully~
