The Quetzal is one of the most spectacular and widely admired birds of the New World. The indigenous Mayans and Aztecs called it "holy" and featured it in sculptures next to their gods. For birdwatchers and nature lovers alike, this bird is worth a trip to Costa Rica, the best country to see the resplendent bird in its natural habitat in the elevated cloud forests.
