  1. First time I'd seen a Motmot with all its tail feathers.
  2. I was chasing birds at the Uxmal Mayan site and I saw a Motmot along the edge of a wooded area, but almost immediately it flew deeper into the woods. I swung by that area about 45 minutes later and was standing at one spot scanning the trees, when I heard a faint mewing sound behind me. I turned and this Motmot was perched on a branch about 15 feet away, checking me out. It sat there for several minutes and I took a bunch of photos of it. Most of the photos were great, it would have been difficult to select one as the best, so I’m posting three. I’m not sure what the bird was doing in the third photo, but it’s a funny shot.
