Blue-crowned or Lesson's Motmot

Momotus [coeruliceps or lessonii] (= 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.
