Turquoise Browed MotMot

This beautiful bird flew into our screened porch this morning.  She let me pick her for a brief photo before release.  Youcan just see her raquet-tipped tail between my arms.  Didn’t seem to be hurt.

      Lavae, I was able to hold a humming bird that knocked itself out flying into the kitchen window. It regained consciousness, flutered it’s wings & flew off. Sadly to day I found the 2nd dove in the last week drowned in
      the pool after flying into the sliding glass door’s above the pool. I’m glad you’re story had a happier ending!

        Better open those doors above the pool.
