TOUCANS IN MY GARDEN
Today I start posting some of my favorite pictures. Today will be about Toucans that had visited my garden in 2006.
The Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco) is the best known and largest member of the toucan family. They live in South American rainforests and Cerrado savannah. Toucans get their name from ‘tucano’ given to them by the Tupi Indians of Brazil. The largest species, the Toco Toucan, is about 25 inches (64 cm) long.
Here you can hear their sound.
