Among the most spectacular and colorful birds in Costa Rica's tropical forests are the great diversity of medium-sized birds such as Trogons, Motmots, Toucans and woodpeckers. Toucans, with their large colorful bills, are THE target bird of many non-birder visitors to Costa Rica. Motmots are a photographer's joy as they will sit on a perch for extended periods holding a pose for minutes on end. Although mostly larger than these and not as colorful, the Cracids (Curassows, Guans and Chachalacas) are also impressive in their own ways.
