One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Toucan

This year I photographed two species of toucan.  These colorful birds with their gigantic, unwieldy looking beaks, are fun to watch as they nimbly pluck a piece of fruit, then flip it into their gullets with a quick snap of their heads.

The chestnut-mandibled toucan is a little larger than the fiery-billed aracari.  These exotic creatures are iconic birds of Costa Rica.
