Blue-crowned Motmot

Momotus coeruliceps (Gould, J 1836)

The blue-capped motmot or blue-crowned motmot is a colorful near-passerine bird found in forests and woodlands of eastern Mexico. This species and the Lesson's Motmot, Whooping Motmot, Trinidad Motmot, Amazonian Motmot, and Andean Motmot were all considered conspecific. The IUCN uses blue-crowned as their identifier for this species, however it was also the name used for the prior species complex. Source: Wikipedia
