Trinidad Motmot

Momotus bahamensis

 

Asa Wright Nature Centre, Tunapuna-Piarco, Trinidad.

 

This is another species that was formerly treated as a subspecies of what was then called "Blue-crowned Motmot". It is extremely similar to Whooping Motmot M.subrufescens, and perhaps should be treated as a subspecies of that species.
