Slaty Tailed Trogon
The Slaty-tailed Trogon , Trogon massena , is a near passerine bird in the trogon family, Trogonidae.
It is a resident of the canopy and higher levels of damp tropical forests, but comes lower in adjacent semi-open areas. It nests 3 to 15 m high in an occupied termite nest or decaying tree trunk, with a typical clutch of three white or bluish-white eggs laid in a chamber reached by an ascending tunnel. Both sexes excavate the nesting chamber.
The trails that wind through the park are lengthy and will take you through an amazingly rich tropical forest. Epiphytes and lianas abound on the trunks and boughs of majestic trees.
