Beautiful Fantastical Birds

The resplendent quetzal, is an emblematic bird of southern Mexico and Central America. It has a very long vibrant iridescent tail.
This precious bird was sacred to the ancient Maya and Aztec peoples, and royalty and priests wore its feathers during ceremonies. It takes about 3 years for male Quetzals to grow their long tail feathers.
