No, “Trogon” is not to be confused with “Volgon,” a fictional species from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe” – a tongue-in-cheek Sci-Fi Novel and movie. Trogon is a family of birds in Latin America that are beautiful and rare. Since we was jellin’ like Magellan on the front balcony, we had the chance to see one of these. Its tail made up half of its length, it was a rusty brown – and it was 32 inches long. We may not have been sitting there, long enough to see the bird, if I had not re-injured my back by swimming, so there was a funny karma at work.
