Along with their emerald-green color palette and the males’ long tail feathers, resplendent quetzals are known for their deep, lyrical calls.
They have a wide vocal range, useful in many situations. For example, this quetzal might let out a noise when he takes flight, a different one to warn other quetzals about danger, and yet another one to let his mate know it’s his turn to guard the nest.
