Quetzals are strikingly colored birds in the trogon family. They're found in forests and woodlands, especially in humid highlands and have iridescent green or golden-green wing coverts, back, chest and head, with a red belly. These largely solitary birds feed on fruits, berries, insects and small vertebrates (such as frogs). Even with their famous bright plumage, they can be hard to see in their natural wooded habitats.
