No, I did not just make up both the words in the title. Although "violaceous" is a pretty badass word.
I fell in love with trogons during my study abroad in Costa Rica. Despite their colors, they're hard to spot a lot of the time just because they're so damn quiet. They have the coolest striped, squared tails. It's totally different from just about any other bird you're likely to see. Which I guess makes sense since trogons are kind of off in a group all their own in bird classifications.
