Birds of Panama - large bird
The Violaceous Trogon (Trogon
violaceus), also known as the
Guianan Trogon, is a near passerine
bird in the trogon family,
Trogonidae. It is found in humid
forests in the Amazon Basin of South
America and on the island of
Trinidad, although some authorities
have argued for treating the west
Amazonian population as a separate
species, the Amazonian Trogon (T.
ramonianus). Until recently, the
Gartered Trogon (T. caligatus) of
Mexico, Central America and
north-western South America was
generally considered a subspecies of
the Violaceous Trogon.
