Justification
This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Chocó trogon

The Chocó trogon (Trogon comptus), also known as the white-eyed trogon or blue-tailed trogon, is a species of bird in the Trogonidae family. It is found in humid lowland forest in western Colombia and north-western Ecuador.

About[edit]

A study done in 2008 suggests that the genus Trogon originated in Central America then worked its way to South America. Female trogon can be separated into two different groups. One group having brown breasts and heads while the others have grey breasts and heads. Males have red or yellow underparts with large eyes, stout hooked bills, short wings, and long, squared-off, strongly graduated tails. Also they have black and white tail-feather markings which form a distinct set of patters on the underside. Males have richly colored metallic plumage and metallic on their upper body.[2]
