A tail-less Orange-breasted Trogon ( Harpactes oreskios) 26.5 - 31.5 cm

It was quite an unusual 'encounter' with this Orange-breasted Trogon, all perfect except minus it's tail! I went about observing it as it went about it's ativities, flying and feeding in the pattern. It performed both activities none the worst without it's long tail, perhaps feeling much lighter without it. :-) The consolation though is that the tail feathers will grow back and in a couple of months this bird will have it's tail back which is great!.

Here are 3 photos to share.

 Thanks for dropping by. Cheers!
