When growing up, the Narina Trogon was always a 'bird of legend', beautiful looking and oh os reclusive. I finally got my chance to see one at Roodewaal in the Soutpansberg in December 2010. We were lucky enough to have even better views at Golwe Vhurivhuri a few days later, with both the male and female showing nicely. I didn't manage to get any decent pics though :(

Nice cardboard cut out! The bird doesn't really exist. You are just trying to make us jealous.....
