Barranquero Andean Motmot

This Barranquero lives in the low mountains near small streams. They can be spotted from far away by their plump figure and their long tails ending in two rudders with a racquet-like shape ending. Their shiny and iridescent plumage is green, blue and black, with an electric blue crown and one or two black drops in the middle of the chest. Their singular red iris make this beautiful bird unique in its species.
