A resplendent quetzal perches in the rain as it waits to feed on a nearby fruiting tree. after swallowing the fruit whole they wait for their digestive acids to dissolve the skin and fruit then regurgitate the seed. the resplendent quetzal can be found from southern mexico to panama, and is the national bird of guatemala. they are fairly large birds that can reach over three feet (a meter) in length, including tail. nikon d850 camera body and nikon af-s 800mm 1:5.6 fl ed vr lens. -•••-

A male yellow-headed caracara stands on a river bank where it searches for scraps of food. yellow-headed caracaras are in the falcon family. however, unlike most members of the family, they do not hunt “on the wing”. they are slower flying and often feed by scavenging. they are common in southern central america and tropical and subtropical south america. nikon d850 camera body and nikon af-s 500mm 1:5.6 pf ed vr lens. -•••-
