The Trogon: Beautiful Nibblers of the Forest

9 August 2017

The Trogon – it sounds like a species of alien out of Star Trek or Doctor Who. However, this family of somewhat overlooked birds has its roots very firmly on planet Earth and the Ark in Space has a great photo feature on them today. These exquisite birds are well worth a look.

Part of the Trogonidae family contains six species which are considered the most beautiful – if not the most unusual – in the family. These are the Quetzals – you can see one in the picture above.Jump over to our sibling site, the Ark in Space, for a glimpse of ten of the 39 species of trogon.
