Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small toucan of rainforest canopy that is most often seen at fruiting trees at forest edge. Smaller than an aracari and tends not to occur in large groups. Sexes dissimilar, unlike other toucans in range; from below, note mostly black (male) or dark gray (female) plumage and colorful facial pattern. Reaches from a perch to pluck fruit similar to other toucans. Calls include croaking and wailing sounds which may not initially be recognized as coming from a bird.
