Distribution and Habitat
White-Tailed Trogons are found in the Amazon and Orinoco basins, also in E. Panama, Ecuador, Columbia and Brazil.
White-Tailed Trogon inhabits a variety of forest and woodland habitats.
White-Tailed Trogons are a relatively large sized bird. They are about 11 inches long and weigh a half-pound. Trogons have distinctive male and female plumage, with soft, colorful feathers. The head and upper breast of the male are dark blue; his back is green and bluer on the rump. The wings are black with thin white lines. The female is grey and blacker on the tail but still has a yellow belly, like the male. The complete eye-ring is pale blue.
White-Tailed Trogons are very noticeable with their yellow breast and blue eye-ring.
Their song, which consists of soft, melodious notes, serves to distinguish it from other trogons.
White-Tailed Trogons’ nests are built in termite mounds or holes in rotting trees.
