Channel Billed Toucan

The channel-billed toucan (Ramphastos vitellinus) is a near-passerine bird in the family Ramphastidae found on the Caribbean island of Trinidad and in tropical South America as far south as southern Brazil and central Bolivia.
A toucan's long reach allows it to plunder tree cavities and nests in search of other birds' eggs and chicks, and they will eat insects, frogs, and small reptiles as well.

Channel-billed Toucans don't sing, but give a high-pitched, croaking cree-op cree-op cree-op call. Adults court by noisily croaking together, preening each other's feathers (allopreening), and tossing fruits to each other. Males within a group of toucans may chase each other or grapple with their bills to establish dominance.Like the Saffron Toucanet and Thick-billed Parrot, Channel-billed Toucans nest in naturally occurring tree cavities or large woodpecker holes, where both male and female cooperate to raise their young. The small family often remains together after the young fledge; they may also form small flocks of three to 12 birds, which may join with other toucan species while feeding.
