Javan Trogons are small to medium-sized exotic-looking birds endemic to the Javan region. They are most commonly found in lower montane rainforests on lower slopes.

These birds are chiefly sedentary in nature and non-migratory, spending most of their lives confined to a small area where they forage for food, roost, breed, raise offspring, and die. Usually, they lay 1-2 eggs at a time, and only one offspring, on average, can survive.

These birds are insectivorous and feed upon beetles, cicadas, and stick insects, but apart from that, they are sometimes also seen feeding on fruits such as figs.
