Juvenile Mountain Trogon

Earlier this month, Stan and Darnelle came over from the Lake Chapala area to bird with us.  They reported seeing a male Sparkling-tailed woodstar at a feeder in Zirahuen. 

At Columpio, they added a number of new birds to their life and Mexico lists.  The most interesting bird of the day was one that we couldn't immediately identify.  Thanks to several individuals on the Mexico-birding yahoogroup, we've concluded that it's a juvenile Mountain trogon.  I must admit that I wished it to be an Eared quetzal.....
