Slaty Tailed Trogon
Birds of Panama - large bird
The Slaty-tailed Trogon, Trogon
massena, is a near passerine bird in
the trogon family, Trogonidae. It
breeds in lowlands from southeastern
Mexico south through Central
America, to Colombia, and a small
region of northwestern Ecuador.
Slaty-tailed Trogons feed on insects
and fruit, and their broad bills and
weak legs reflect their diet and
arboreal habits. Although their
flight is fast, they are reluctant
to fly any distance. They typically
perch upright and motionless.
