The Quetzal: Guatemala's National Bird. There's a legend about how the Quetzal got its red chest: he landed on dying Mayan ruler Tecún Umán's chest after being wounded by Spaniard Don Pedro de Alvarado. After that moment the Quetzal's chest turned forever red. The Quetzal is a symbol of freedom, as these birds cannot live in captivity.
