White-tailed Trogon (Trogon viridis)

Surucuá-grande-de-barriga-amarela, em português.

 

I came across this beautiful bird on an early morning walk in the mountainous interior of the state of Espírito Santo. It is a sizeable bird, perhaps 25-30 cm with tail.

 

Near Pedra Azul, Espírito Santo, Brazil.
