Turquoise-browed Motmot - Eumomota superciliosa
The Turquoise-browed Motmot, Eumomota superciliosa (Coraciiformes - Momotidae) is a colorful bird distributed in México and Central America (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua).
Both male and female Turquoise-browed Motmot have long tails that terminate in widened blue-and-black rackets that appear to hang, unattached, below the body of the bird. In this species, males’ tail length aids in sexual selection; males with longer tails have greater pairing and reproductive success.
These birds are colonial-breeding, socially monogamous that exhibits biparental care.
