It is a near-passerine bird with green and blue plumage, they have red eyes and turquoise crown and black face. Motmot eggs are round and white and incubate for three weeks. Their call is a double "hoot," similar to that of an owl. Both males and females share parental responsibility. And motmots choose to live near water, for drinking and bathing.
Found in a forest near a township called Altagracia.
Because they can live in many different forest types, ranging from rainforests to shaded coffee farms, the blue-crowned motmot is not on the endangered list. However, as shaded coffee farms and forests are destroyed, the survival of this beautiful bird is threatened.
