THE TOUCANS ARE BACK... OS TUCANOS VOLTARAM...








Guess who have been visiting my garden again! The beautiful toucans. In this season (winter) they come back to eat the little fruits of the palm tree in front my bedroom window. They are very elusive and when I approche with the camera on hands they fly aways to a eucaliptus tree near my house.
Toucans are a family, Ramphastidae, of near passerine birds from Central America and South American. The family includes five genera and about forty different species. The name of this bird group is derived from the language Tupi tucana. Toucans are frugivorous (fruit eating), but are opportunistically omnivorous and will take prey such as insects and small lizards. To know more about this beautiful bird, clique Here.
Adivinhem quem tem vindo me visitar no meu jardim! Os lindos tucanos. Nesta época do ano eles voltam e ficam um bom tempo comendo os pequenos frutos da palmeira em frente à janela do meu quarto. Mas eles são muito ariscos e mesmo indo pé ante pé com a camera na mão para tirar fotos, eles voam para o topo de um eucalipto ali perto.

Tucano são aves da família Ramphastidae que vivem nas florestas da América Central e América do Sul. A família engloba cinco gêneros e cerca de quarenta espécies diferentes. O nome Tucano deriva da lingua Tupi tucana. Os tucanos são frugívoros, mas também onívoros, alimentando-se de insetos, lagartos, ovos e filhotes de outros pássaros.

    I'd give a lot to see a toucan in real life rather than just in books.

  11. I am a bird Mom--my little cockatiel Mitley was one of the best buddies I ever encountered. I love Toucans, African greys and scarlet mackaws and every other little birdie inbetween. Send the toucan a little greeting from me.

  13. I'd love to have a real live toucan in my back yard!
    Lucky Sonia!
    Toucans were used to advertise the Irish Stout beer Guinness when I was a child in Engand. We had a tray that said on it:
    Toucans in their nests agree
    Guinness is good for you
    Try some today and see
    What one or toucan do.

  15. Boa noite carissima, voltando da pausa feita e já me deliciando com a paisagem. Que delícia ver essa ave. Eu acho o tucano um encanto. Há tempos atrás li em algum lugar que estavam em extinção e fiquei indignada, afinal, nós humanos descartamos as espécies como se fossemos os maiorais. Lamentável e espero sinceramente que a espécie esteja de fato a salvo da nossa espécie. Bacio carissima e grata por esse colorido singular.
