Black-tailed Trogon - Gatun Locks, Panama

Trogons are great to watch. They almost look like those birds in the cartoons they use as video surveillance. They search for insects on the wing by moving their head ever so slowly and smoothly until the momment of the strike. Then the dash out in a flurry of wings and tail and then settle on another branch to find the next meal. This particular bird was part of the Mob that was making sure a Spectacled owl wasnt making them lunch.
