Bird from South Africa (1 Viewer)

I'm sorting through a load of old photos my dad took on his trips around the world. Anyone know what this is? It's probably from South Africa but I'm not 100%. P1070980.JPG

That's a beautiful trogon and a lovely picture you've taken of him too CV.

It's certainly an African species, but there are a few subspecies from various parts of the continent. If you want to take it further you could find out more from our Opus article: Narina Trogon - BirdForum Opus
 
Trogon. :) Thank you, thank you, thank you. My Dad took the photo, by the way, and the irony is that I have a picture (drawing/painting) of two trogons in my living room as I write. One with red breast and one with a yellow breast. I bought it at the natural history museum. I'm not a birder, so it takes a while for these things to sink in.
