Resplendent Quetzal Nest Video
La Tigra National Park march 17 2008
These are the crown jewels from the trip….A male resplendent quetzal nesting!!!
We woke up at 5 am to get these images, the interesting part was that during the night the female roosts inside the nest and the male roosts somewhere around, when morning came the female got out of the nest and perched a few trees from the nest a few minutes later the male got inside the nest to continue the process of incubation….SO COOL!!!
In the video you cant see the nest quite so precise…so We took some photos also where you can see thr tail of the Quetzal floating in the breeze, they leave their tail out so in doesnt get ruined in the tight nest area…talk about being glamorous 😉
Hope you enjoyed the La Tigra National Park Special…
