Trogon melanurus mesurus

The Ecuadorian trogon (Trogon mesurus) is a species of bird in the family Trogonidae. It is found in deciduous and semi-humid forest and woodland in western Ecuador and far north-western Peru. It was formerly considered a subspecies of the black-tailed trogon, which it resembles, except for its white eyes. It does not currently have any subspecies listed in the Catalogue of Life.[3]
