hey te quedo muy bonito, me gusta, una vez, una de estas aves entro a mi casa volando, ya era noche, imagino que salen por las noches a alimentarse de insectos nocturnos!

en mi pais lo conocemos como "Torogoz"

Hey, gracias por el dato!, aunque aquí (en Yucatán)  no he visto que sean nocturnos, más bien los he visto de día.

a very beautiful bird, the national bird of my country (El Salvador) here is called "torogoz" there is also another very similar bird of the same species called "talapo" (Momotus momota)

the torogoz has black eyes, talapo eyes are red, there are many features that distinguish these two beautiful birds.

here for you.

Hat Tip Toh! remarkable...well deserved DD

Very real, the sharp contrast gives it away as a painting but also gives a unique look

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in yo
