Yea on Wikipedia it said there is a break in their range in southern Central America, then are common again in South America, very strange. This was at Laguna Attascosa NWR in extreme southern Texas, and they were literally everywhere!

wow - I'd been hoping to see one in Belize, but they said they were shy and uncommon

They are supposed to be here in the Hill Country too. Maybe some day.

Thanks! They are super common in Mexico and extreme southern Texas, a lot of people consider them trash birds. They are too pretty for me to ever think that!

You're so lucky! This is awesome... It's way prettier than I could have ever imagined. I have been waiting to see one of these in my area but no luck yet. Great shot too.
