Blue-crowned Motmot

Momotus momot

Description:

large bird, fairly friendly and tolerant of humans

Habitat:

cloudforest, 2100m

Notes:

I spotted the blue-crowned motmot in a few places but was able to get the best photos on top of a viewpoint in the small mountain town of Salento. I was fairly close and the bird didn't seem to mind at all.
