"I have just had the opportunity to view a really neat tape of the Chiricahuas entitled "The Chiricahuas: Mountain Islands in the Desert." The video includes footage describing the geologic history of the mountains, the wildlife and the plants. Of special interest to birders is a great section on the nesting habits of Elegant Trogons which has incredible footage of adults feeding the young in nests. There are wonderful closeups to the extent that even the insects in the trogons bills are identified. There are many other birds shown, but this footage on trogons is really spectacular. This segment also includes a neat interview with Richard C. Taylor who "wrote the book" on trogons, and gives us great details about them here."
