Pretty in Green

    Newer Older

    Combining my feeble memory of what I was told with what I've just looked up on Wikipedia, I think this is a toucanet. They are native to southern Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.

    This one was proud of its feathers; it did a lot of posing for us!

      LOL Every frame I have of him makes him look that way. It's ironic, since he was really putting on a show for us.

      This was such a cool little bird. Every time I've been there , he has been quite engaging! From what I understand they are very curious birds by nature, and I do believe that they are available as pets like some parrots.

      It must be like a Toucan in some ways. It sure has a big beak.
