What is an Eared Quetzel? It's not in my books on birds of Mexico, Costa Rica, or Trinidad. Is the Eared Trogon now being called a quetzel? Is it still Euptilotus neoxenus? Who decided the change, when and why? How about other trogons, are they also being called quetzels? So, the wonderful Resplendent Quetzel is no longer one of a kind. Anyone who has seen a trogon will now be able to say they've seen a quetzel. I do get tired of all these name changes.
