Resplendent Quetzal, Mirador de Quetzales, Costa Rica

Resplendant Quetzals are specialized fruit-eaters. Of particlar importance are wild avocados (on the picture) and other fruit of the laurel family, which the birds swallow whole before regurgitating the pits, which helps to disperse these trees.
