Another from my trip to Argentina and Brazil.

This was taken deep into the National Park with limited light.

Toucan is the Brazilian name for a bird of the tropical American family Ramphastidae, characterized by their huge but light beaks. There are 37 species of these birds ranging from Mexico to Argentina. Toucans are found only in the Western Hemisphere. These peculiar birds belong to the order Piciformes, all of whose members have feet with the first and fourth toes reversed, and all of which are cavity nesters.

Many thanks for looking.
