Specie: Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno)
Description: During breeding season, the male resplendent quetzal grows a tail that can reach up to one meter long, or three time its body length! He uses these long feathers to attract a female by flying around her in spiral, showing off its tail to get her attention. It is thought that the length of the feathers is important for a female to choose her mate.
