Toucan mosaic.

While vacationing in Costa Rica I was able to see three different kinds of Toucans. I thought it would be fun to make a mosaic with their photos. They are the Collared  Aracari, Keel billed Toucan and the Chestnut Mandibled Toucan. Seeing the toucans was a real treat for me and I think they are really cool cartoonish looking birds. Below I have separate post on the Keel billed Toucan and the Collard Aracari but this is my first time for adding the Chestnut mandibled Toucan to a post. The red and yellow colors on the toucans are so bright and pretty.

  9. My husband and I were in Costa Rica some years ago on an EcoTour. I remember being so fascinated by the toucans at our hotel. We fed them pieces of our bananas. It was a lovely country. Valerie

  24. The epitome of a tropical bird, I adore the Toucan.

    Years ago a local restaurant was named Toucans and it had a live Toucan in a huge glassed in area. The restaurant didn't make it but hopefully the bird did!

  40. The ecological diversity that helped evolve so many distinct-yet-related species is amazing. Each must be specialized for particular foods, niche, etc?
