My, What a Big Beak You Have!

This image is of a keel billed toucan, Ramphastos sulfuratus. There are about 40 species of toucans, which are neotropical passerine birds that eat fruit, insects, and small lizards. Fortunately for the bird in flight, the bill, or mandible is not as heavy as it appears.
