This individual was perched a short distance away from the first, and although in a somewhat more cluttered area, it was a beautiful specimen. Our guide indicated that this was a juvenile, as indicated by the tail feathers. In the adult in the first shot, there is the usual 'motmot' appearance, with a long thin feather shaft ending with a tuft at the end, while this one hasn't reached that point yet. Some have expressed their opinion that the Motmots intentionally pluck parts of the feathers to create the adult appearance, while others claim it is the result of natural abrasion with branches, etc. along with preening.
