The ocellated turkey is a beautiful bird and our last group that did the el Mirador jungle trek saw one. Rado from Romania was part of the group – he got a FREE ride back from el Mirador / la Danta on a helicopter. Why? Because the rich people in the helicopter were totally impressed with him riding is bike, fully-loaded, all the way to el Mirador and on to la Danta pyramid.
The colors on this Maya bird are amazing – no wonder the Maya used its feather for their brilliant colors.
