Blue-crowned Motmot

The king of the forrest

In fact the name of this remarkable bird is Blue-crowned Motmot. Pretty unmistakable for it's racquet-tipped tail and the shining turquoise head. But indeed these birds are not too easy to observe: calmly they sit around on branches in the forrest. Not shy at all, but silent.

And they look around with that majestic expression so anyone can imagine where the other name comes from.
