I have seen and photographed the Turqoise-browed and Blue-crowned Motmots on previous trip, but this was my first sighting of the Broad-billed. He posed quite a while for us, giving ample time to shoot. He was in a heavily shaded and dark area, once again forcing reliance on flash to provide adequate light.
