Trogons are among the most beautiful birds in the world. Particularly noticeable is the quetzal, whose two central tail coverts can reach more than three times the body length of 38 cm. It was revered as a sacred bird by the Aztecs and Mayans and is now the national bird of Guatemala. The smallest species is the Black-throated Trogon from Central and South America with a body length of 23 cm, the largest species is Ward's Trogon with 40 cm from East Asia. Trogons occur up to an altitude of 3600 m. The nests of the trogons with up to 4 eggs are created in existing caves. All trogons catch insects in flight or pick fruits and caterpillars from leaves or branches.
