    Elegant Trogon Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      Elegant Trogons are medium-sized stocky, potbellied birds. They are larger than a robin, with a large, round head, a thick neck, large eyes, and a short, stout bill. Trogons perch upright with their long square-tipped tails pointing straight down.

      Relative Size

      Larger and thicker-bodied than American Robin; about the size of a Belted Kingfisher, with a much longer tail.
