Yesterday afternoon we spotted the toucans again. This time we called our neighbors so we had quite a group of excited people in our backyard watching the birds. My neighbor, who loves birds, told us that she had seen one with a yellow beak a long time ago, but she had never seen these toucans. She thinks maybe they are living by the river somewhere and as long as this tree has the berries they like, they will come back. We saw two adults for sure, and she said she also saw a young bird, smaller, less color, and a smaller beak.
This is our house, and that big tree behind it is where we have seen the toucans, way up in the top of that tree.

Such a beautiful bird! Thank you again Joel for catching a bunch of great photos.
