The black-tailed trogon (Trogon melanurus) is a species of bird in the family Trogonidae. It is found in humid forest in the Amazon basin, north-western South America and adjacent Panama. The taxon mesurus from western Ecuador and far north-western Peru was formerly considered a subspecies of the black-tailed trogon, but is now considered a separate species, the Ecuadorian trogon.
Black-tailed Trogon is a canopy and mid-level forest species in lowland South America. The male has a yellow bill and reddish eyering, a green head, chest, and upperparts with a white band separating the chest from the red underparts, and a blackish tail. Females are gray above and below save for the red belly. The species has three disjunct parts to its distribution, consisting of the Amazon Basin, a disjunct range west of the Andes in Peru and Ecuador, and a northern range in Panama, Colombia, and Venezuela. They feed on fruit, especially Cecropia, and arthropods. Calls of the Black-tailed Trogon include a ratting ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca series while the song typically consists of a slower series of evenly spaced, downslurred, whistled took notes.
