The Turquoise-browed Motmot (Eumomota superciliosa) is a colourful, medium-sized bird of the motmot family, Momotidae. It inhabits Central America from south-east Mexico (mostly the Yucatán Peninsula), to Costa Rica, where it is common & not considered threatened. Males apparently use their tail as a sexual signal, as males with longer tails have greater pairing success & reproductive success.
