..... One of my all-time favorite birds, the motmot sits quietly on a limb waiting for an insect to move.
Then, they drop to the ground, grab their prey, and quickly regain their perch for a meal.
Motmots get their unusual name from their low, boop-boop call, which they make while
twitching their tail from side to side like a pendulum. The reason for the racquet
tail is still an evolutionary mystery: the birds pluck their tail feathers leaving
the round “racquets”, whose purpose is still unknown.
