The Quetzal, Pharomachrus Mocinno, is considered to be one of the most beautiful birds of the new world. With its green and red glittering feathers he ranks among the most magnificent in appearance in the tropical mountain forests of Costa Rica. The male Resplendent Qetzals have long, slender tail-coverts, which extend far beyond his tail in an elegant train and were particularly sought after for decoration by the cultures of the Aztecs and the Maya. The Quetzal is still found in large numbers in the forests of Costa Rica. Due to a high level of protection there is little or no danger of extinction.
