    I tried to get a touch closer and to set myself up to get rid of that twig but sods law the bird decided it was time to fly. This was the only chance I had in my trip to snap this species.

    Not my best shot of an Elegant Trogon, but I like catching him with his lunch, a caterpillar in his mouth. I have a special affection for Trogon's as they are the bird that started me on my birding journey. The Elegant Trogon is large bird of Mexico, they stand about 12.5" and have a...

    The Elegant Trogan visits Southeastern Arizona each spring to mate, then returns to Mexico in August. Found in the canyons of the Huachuca and Chiricauhu mountains. Trogans like to nest in Sycamore trees. They are very elusive birds, frustrating birders with their call while not showing...

    If I don't look at you, you can't see me!

    Elegant Trogons are very elusive birds. Many of us search every year for them, and only get to hear them not see them. This year I was lucky to get not just one but two pictures of a male.

  17. Feeding time!

    Feeding time!

    I watched the male come down by the fledgling here, then they both flew off a little ways and the male transfered that scary-looking thing to the fledgling. So cool! Now I just wish a few of those twigs could've moved a bit!

    An absolutely gorgeous bird! He's waiting to feed a fledgling here.

    Elegant Trogon fledgling

    I was walking down the main road in the canyon below the Chuparosa Inn when I heard an unusual insistent trilling call. I located this tiny fledgling Elegant Trogon sitting in a low shrub just off the road. The bird fluttered a few times and landed on a rock. This is undoubtedly one of two...
