La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica, 16 March 2014. As I mentioned, a slaty-tailed trogon couple nests in a termite nest in a tree close to the entrance. The birds are enlarging their nest. The termites don’t mind them. After the resplendent quetzal, slaty-tailed trogons are among the biggest trogon species.
As we go back, the slaty-tailed trogon couple are still busy. It is the first time ever that they nest here.
This is the female.
And this is the male again.
And the female again.
The keys of nearby Selva Verde lodge depict a different species: the gartered trogon.
This is beautiful and you are amazing!!!! Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful words and for such a wonderful response…:)
Thanks for your kind words!
All the best for you and your blog 🙂
