I have no idea the name of this bird. I found the original picture in a bird magazine. I took a picture with my cell phone to remind me what it looked like because I knew that I had to paint it in watercolor. I think it turned out great! I'll keep looking and see if I can identify it.
I finally identified this bird. It is a Russett-crowned Motmot. They live in Guatemala and Mexico. Coffee, grown in the traditional way and in the shade of native canopy trees, provides good habitat.
