Guianan, Gartered or Amazonian Trogon

Trogon [violaceus, ramonianus or caligatus] (= Trogon violaceus) Gmelin, JF 1788

The Guianan trogon, is a near passerine bird in the trogon family, Trogonidae. It is found in humid forests in the Amazon basin of South America and on the island of Trinidad. Until recently, this species, the gartered trogon of Mexico, Central America, and northern South America, and the Amazonian trogon of the western Amazon were all considered to be conspecific and collectively called violaceous trogon.
