IMG_9052 Elegant Trogon

I went to Patagonia Lake State Park, AZ to see if I could find the Elegant Trogon that has been wintering here. I had good maps and directions from the listserve, but couldn't find him. I found a Birdwalk being led by one of the Park Volunteers and tagged along. Lucky for me because the leader took me to a place I hadn't been yet. Lucky for them because I was the one who spotted the beauty! Lucky Leap Day!! Best viewed Large for feather details.
