Black-headed Trogon
Trogon melanocephalus
The Black-headed Trogon (Trogon melanocephalus) occurs on the Atlantic slope of S. E. Mexico southward to Costa Rica. The newly-fledged bird shown here was photographed in August, 2000, along a woodland trail near Felipe Carillo, Quintana Roo, Mexico. The shot was taken with a Canon EOS 3 and EF 300mm F2.8 L lens and 1.4X extender and flash on Fuji Velvia film.
