Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Brightly-colored but sluggish medium-sized bird. Unmistakable; the only trogon in its range. Male has black head, white “belt,” and bright red belly. Female has a brown head and orangish underparts. Both sexes have a bright blue bill. Sits quietly in the middle levels of forests, often near bamboo clusters; also follows mixed-species foraging flocks. Gives a series of inflected yelps: “kweh, kweh, kweh.”
