Thank you for the nomination AshleyT.
Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
Thank you!! :)
According to the Fifty-seventh Supplement to the American Ornithologists’ UnionCheck-list of North American Birds, based on the vocalizations and morphology analisis the species M. momota was split on 2016 in 3 different species: Momotus coeruliceps, M. lessonii, and M. subrufescens. You can find the cited documet on this link http://americanornithologypubs.org/doi/p...Cheers!
Can you, please, tell me, why this is not Momotus momota? Do you know some criteria for the separation of the 2 species? I do not challenge your ID, just wondering if I have missed something the last 10 years...
