Trogons are 9-14" colorful birds that usually sit quietly and are fairly easy to photograph. That makes them popular with me!
The 11" male Black-headed Trogon (Trogon malanocephalus) has a black head, yellow belly and a blue eye ring.

These are very intelligent monkeys and use tools frequently. They are the traditional monkey for the organ grinder and can be taught to assist paraplegics as helpers.
I was so close, this is the whole photo.
