A resplendent quetzal male spreads its wings and flies away from the tree where it has made its nest. From this angle, you can see all of the bird’s colors, including its green back, black wings, red chest, and long blue-green tail train.
When it’s time to lay eggs, resplendent quetzals dig a hole in a rotted tree trunk with their beaks. After the female lays the eggs, both parents take turns incubating them.
