This gorgeous guy is the turquoise-browed motmot, the official bird of El Salvador!

Found between Southern Mexico to Costa Rica, it's classed as least concern on the IUCN Red List but their numbers are declining fast.

When they detect predators they wag their tail back and forth - It's thought that they are telling the predators that they've been spotted and the bird is about to make a quick escape!
