This hand-coloured print shows ‘Le Momot Oranroux’, a momot (a tropical American bird with green-blue plumage). The print was published as an illustration to the first of three volumes of the French ornithological book ‘Histoire Naturelle des Promérops, et des Guêpiers’ (1807).
‘Le Momot Oranroux’ is reproduced in a supplement to the volume, which includes ‘Different Categories of Bird to those described in the first two volumes’.
