What is a Quetzal?

A Quetzal is a bird most famous for being on the flag of Guatemala, as well as being that country's national bird, and the name for their currency. Quetzals are a member of the Trogon family, and are about 12 in/30 cm long, with the long tail coverts being about 24 in/60 cm long. Males are an iridescent green on their backs and long banner feathers, with red bellies and white tail feathers, as well as having a crest on top of their heads. Females are lacking the head crest and long banner feathers on the tail, and their white tail feathers are thinly barred with black. Their feathers are also a duller color of the same green and red. Quetzals are seasonally monogamous. When nesting, they share the task of incubating the eggs and nestlings, as well as bringing food. Nests are made in the trunks of dead trees, and are carved out by the pair beforehand, though they will also use older nests if they are still suitable. Eggs are a light turquoise blue, and are generally laid in pairs. There can be two broodings per season. Incubation lasts about 17-18 days. Fledglings leave the nest at about 25-30 days. Adult Quetzals eat mainly fruits, typically of the avocado family, but occasionally supplement that with insects, small lizards and frogs. After eating the fruits, they regurgitate the pits. The nestlings are brought insects, larvae, and small lizards at first, but fruits are added into their diet later as they get closer to leaving the nest. The dinosaur Quetzalacoatlus was named after a quetzal. The bird was named after an Aztec god. The aztecs value their feathers. Quetzals are a beautiful sight, why not search them up on google images?

Why do kakapo have green feathers and other birds do not?

Kakapo are not the only birds with green feathers. Peacocks have green amongst feathers, as do many species of parrot besides the kakapo. In the case of the kakapo, being a flightless, nocturnal parrot with very few defensive mechanisms, it needs to remain unseen. Therefore, camouflage is one of its most effective defences, and the reason why its feathers are mottled green and yellow. The green feathers have similar colouring to leaves in the kakapo's habitat and allow the kakapo to blend in with its environment. When a kakapo senses a predator, its first instinct is to freeze. This, coupled with the bird's green colouring, renders it almost invisible to many predators, especially humans, who used to hunt the kakapo for food.
