Lifer 659 – Gartered Trogon – Reflections of the Pure World

Chronicles of a Birders Life Listing

Over the previous 40 years I’ve had the great fortune to photographically doc 85% of the hen species added to my “Life Listing.” This weblog collection showcases the pictures and anecdotal accounts that doc these “Lifer” sightings and a little bit concerning the setting and tradition of the realm. This Lifer weblog collection begins with the primary LIFER exterior of the US, Lifer #624 and proceeds chronologically ahead from there.

Yellow Star indications the situation of my Lifer sighting

DETAILS ABOUT SIGHTING: After 4 busy days of exploring so many fascinating, however very a lot filled with folks locations, Maria and I needed to return to go to Muyil figuring out that it was not going to be very busy. We loved one other breakfast at our favourite restaurant, El Rincón Mexicano Muyil. We weren’t upset and just about had the entire space to ourselves. As we walked by the park-like entrance space all the way in which again to the small pyramid and again, we simply casually explored the zone, pausing to sit down and loosen up and simply hear and luxuriate in. Over the course of the subsequent 2 1/2 hours, I used to be in a position so as to add 7 new “Lifer” hen species.

4th Lifer – Muyil Go to on 12/5/21: Lifer #659 Gartered Trogon.

Maria and I have been watching a feminine Summer time Tanager within the bushes above the doorway park-like space when this stunning trogon was simply “POOF” there. We by no means noticed it fly in and it didn’t make a sound. Ever since seeing our first Elegant Trogon collectively in Madera Canyon, AZ, we now have been in love with something trogon-related. This hen didn’t disappoint!


All photos under, besides the primary one, have been taken at Muyil. The primary one under was photographed at Cobá.
