    Javan Trogon (Apalharpactes reinwardtii) is a species of bird in the Trogonidae family. The species was once lumped together with the Sumatran Trogon in a single species, the Blue-tailed Trogon, but differences in size, weight and plumage have led to the two being split.[2] These two species were once themselves lumped with the rest of the Asian trogons in the genus Harpactes, but have been split into their own genus due to differences in plumage. The Javan Trogon is endemic to the west of Java

Red-naped Trogon (female). Trogon birds are residents of tropical forests worldwide. They feed on insects and fruit, and their broad bills and weak legs reflect their diet and arboreal habits. Trogons have soft, often colourful, feathers with distinctive male and female plumage. The trogons are insectivorous, usually hunting from a perch. They nest in holes dug into trees or termite nests, laying 2–4 white or pastel-coloured eggs.
