Resplendent Quetzal

The Resplendent Quetzal, arguably the most beautiful bird in the world is a resident of our forest. They can often be heard at dawn yelping away, occasionally fly overhead, but rarely provide satisfactory views. Last week, towards the end of my time at El Danto, a stunning male silently flew into my view, pranced around a little, showing of its ridiculously long tail and flew off again. I haven’t a picture so you’ll have to Google for one.

Rather a highlight, I’d say.

Rather a highlight indeed. I like birds that fly silently me.

My highlight (which no one else will be interested in) was scores of little gulls (which also fly silently) yesterday at Muss. Not as resplendent as your quetzal, but great to see none the less.
