Black Throated Trogon
Birds of Panama - large bird
The Black-throated Trogon (Trogon
rufus) is a near passerine bird in
the trogon family, Trogonidae. It is
also called "Yellow-bellied Trogon",
but as it is not the only trogon
with a yellow belly this should be
avoided. It breeds in lowlands from
Honduras south to western Ecuador
and northern Argentina.
Black-throated Trogons feed mainly
on arthropods as well as some fruit,
often taken in flight; they are one
of the most insectivorous trogon
species of their range.
