Collared Trogon

Collared Trogon, Panacam Lodge, Honduras

This is just about the last bird pic I took on my Honduran trip. I am back at home now. I woke on the morning of my last day thinking that I would really like a trogon shot to end the trip. I had some excellent shots of the Mountain Trogon, and some okay shots of the Gartered, but Trogons are generally easier than that in Honduras. I did not tell Alex about my wish, but this Collared Trogon responded to Alex’s calls and gave us good views on either side of the lawn at Panacam Lodge. In separating the red trogons, it is all about the tail pattern…and none is more striking than the Collared. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 500. Processed in Polarr.
