It has taken me three trips to Panama to find and photograph this bird! The Resplendent Quetzal, reputed to be the most beautiful and ornate bird in the western hemisphere. The breeding male has gleaming emerald tail feathers that can be more than 65cm long. They are the party streamers of the rainforest.
