Remarks This endemic Polillo subspecies of Trogon was recorded from seven of the study sites on Polillo Island, thus extending its distribution beyond the primary old growth forests of Polillo watershed reserve. It is relatively cryptic and more commonly recognised by its gently ascending, prolonged 'nuu'-ing call ('nuu nu nu nu nu nu nuu')
