TROGONS


This stunningly beautiful family of birds is found in the Americas, Africa and Southeast Asia, with the greatest diversity in the neotropics.
Generally inactive, often sitting motionless, waiting for passing insects to prey upon.
Unique in the animal world for their heterodactly feet: digits one and two point forward, digits three and four point backwards.
