Hispaniolan trogon

The Hispaniolan trogon, Priotelus roseigaster, (now mostly accepted as Temnotrogon roseigaster) is a species of bird in the family Trogonidae. It is the national bird of Haiti. It is endemic to the shared island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the neighboring Dominican Republic) in the Caribbean. It is one of the only two trogon species found only on the Caribbean islands. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and what is now heavily degraded forest. It is threatened by habitat loss. It is mostly confined to a few remaining protected areas.
