This fabulous bird is only found in a few mountainous cloud forests. It was at one time thought to be an imaginary bird. If you are fortunate to join a group that takes the day to hike up to the cloud forest on El Triunfo, you might get a chance at seeing one. With the mist and heavy fog, the sighting may not be easy but worth every step.

When the guide found this bird, you could see a bit of movement through the canopy and hear its beak clicking. I felt it might fly.  There was a small gap across the path and I caught it in flight just before it disappeared.  One lucky second!
