Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Scarce inhabitant of highland forests in Chiapas and south to Honduras. Found in humid pine and evergreen forest, perching at all levels. Like other motmots, rather inactive and easily overlooked. Plumage is green overall, with a pale golden face mask and black cheek spot that is usually more noticeable than the turquoise-blue throat. No other motmots occur in its limited highland range.
