No, not a Dyckia! This bird lives here. A lovely Joinville Citizen.

Trogon rufus

This  Atlantic Forest living jewel lives here and was photographed by my friend Vilde Heriberto Florêncio, a wildlife photographer. It is absolutely rare and hard to be spotted. Here also lives the red Trogon and it is much easier to be found. Vilde took this picture yesterday morning here in Joinville where I live.
this bird is related to the Quetzal that lives in Guatemala. Taxonomists had a big deal of work for their skin  is so thin and fragile it was impossível to have preserved specimen of these birds.
The native indians know this bird as "surucuã".

A dazzling beautiful  Joinville citizen!!!
