Black-headed Trogon (Trogon melanocephalus)

Another trogon species with yellow belly, this is distinguished by the fact that both the male and female have black coloration, although the female is much duller. The tail pattern is helpful to distinguish between this and the similar Gartered Trogon, which may be found in similar areas.

The female has duller chest and head, and a white eye-ring. This one had its beak open, presumably to cool off in the heat
