The Red-headed Trogon (Harpactes erythrocephalus) 31-35.5 cm

I had saved the handful of photos taken of this fine looking bird and totally forgotten about them. Not until I came across them whilst looking for other pix. It is a rare find and more difficult to photograph as it tends to keep it's distance. I recalled this one flew from across a deep valley to where I was positioned. Thanks to a Greater Racket-tailed Drongo which harassed it from it's perch and continued to give chase across the valley. Target was still a fairly long distance from my position.
