Beautiful birds and great shot of them also....these are 2 that I more than likely will never see in person, so thanks for sharing them.

Quetzals are really beautiful birds. I wonder when he gets that long tail the Aztecs and others prized them for so much that they nearly went extinct.

Thanks Sharon, the Quetzal was hard to catch in a spot to get a shot.

Thanks cruso

Thank you bettyn, I don't know how old they are when they get the long tail feathers.
