This Trogon measures 28 cm (11 in) and weighs about 89.4 g (3.15 oz). Males and females both have bright yellow underparts with a narrow band of white separating the yellow from a dark chest. Distinctive markings include a dark eye surrounded by a light blue eye ring and black tail feathers with broad white tips. Males have black heads and breasts with a blue-green sheen on the nape, back, and wings. Females are similar, but duller yellow below and slate grey above, with none of the blue-green sheen of the male. [Wikipedia]

    Usually nature designs animals with protection. This is an odd one because the eye is almost “highlighted”
