Blue-crowned Motmot

The iridescent blue was just incredible.

 

Among the 4 major taxonomic authorities, there are now 3 different names for this bird (the Blue-diademed Motmot/Lesson's Motmot of central Central America): Momotus lessonii lessonii, Momotus coeruliceps lessonii, & Momotus momota lessonii. Take your pick!
