Artist's Description

Three Amigo Motmots taken at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, Illinois (USA) with a Canon 7D DSLR and 100-400mm Lens.

Motmots are found in Mexico, Central America, and most of South America in rainforests, second-growth forests, forest edges, shady gardens and shaded coffee farms

The blue-crowned motmot has a large head with a short, down curved beak. Most of the species of motmots have tail feathers that distinguish them from other birds. The center tail feathers, which twitch like the pendulum of a clock when the motmot is perched, have bare spines at the tip. This makes them easily recognizable. The plumage of the blue-crowned motmot is shades of green and blue. They have red eyes, a turquoise crown and black face. Motmot eggs are round and white and incubate for three weeks. Their call is a double “hoot,” similar to that of an owl.
