Today's theme on the A-Z challenge must be the toughest because of the alphabet Q. I feel that i am compelled to share something that is unique and that which will linger in our heads for the longest time, and this is why i choose to write about the Quetzal bird.
The Quetzal bird is an aptly named bird that many consider among the world's most beautiful. These vibrantly colored animals live in the mountainous, tropical forests of Central America where they eat fruit, insects, lizards, and other small creatures.Sadly, it is yet another of the species that is found on the endangered list. A fact that most may not know is that during mating season, male Quetzals grow twin tail feathers that form an amazing train up to three feet (one meter) long.However, females do not have long trains, but they do share the brilliant blue, green, and red coloring of their mates. Unlike humans,male Quetzal colors tend to be more vibrant, whereas the human females tend to be associated more with the bright vibrant colours!
