These photos above of the Toco Toucan were taken by Carlos A. Mascaro on the tree in front our yard and on the palm tree in our garden.
What a beautiful toucans! In this season they come to my garden 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 some trees around. The Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco), also known as the Toucan or Common Toucan, is the largest and probably the best known species in the toucan family. It is found in semi-open habitats throughout a large part of central and eastern South America. It is a common attraction in zoos. It is, unlike the other members of the genus Ramphastos, essentially a non-forest species. It can be found in a wide range of semi-open habitats such as woodland, savanna and other open habitats with scattered trees, Cerrado, plantations, forest-edge, and even wooded gardens. 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. Toucans are frugivorous (fruit eating), but are opportunistically omnivorous and will take prey such as insects, small lizards, eggs and little birds. You can see the toucans on anothers posts I did, here , here and here. Here you can hear their sound.Como são lindos estes tucanos! Nesta época do ano eles são vistos 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 qualquer árvore mais próxima. Os Tucano- toco Ramphastos toco Mül., popularmente conhecido como tucano-grande e tucano-boi, é o maior representante da família Ramphastidae. É encontrado na América do Sul e é o único tucano que pode ser encontrado em campos abertos, como o cerrado, ao contrário dos outros exemplares que vivem em mata fechada. O nome tucano deriva da língua Tupi tucana. Eles são frugívoros mas também onívoros, alimentando-se de insetos, lagartos, ovos e filhotes de outros pássaros.
