Who Can See the Toucans?

My mom did! Still reporting from Costa Rica, and mom was so excited to see Toucans flying around free in the rain forest!

This is the Chestnut-Mandibled Toucan, and it is the largest of the Toucans' species at 52-56cm. Mom saw lots of them, and they hang out in flocks of about 20 in the lower rain forest wetlands.

Mom, you should have brought one of these birdies home to me for a "souvenir" friend! They are very beautiful birdies!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

Wow, those are cool birds! Your mum should have stuffed one in her suitcase. Did it want to be friends with you? I am sure it did.

Toucans fascinate me, so colourful and with such enormous beaks I wonder how the birds aren't front-heavy! Those insects are huge! I hope your Mom doesn't meet a *shudder* tarantula; I don't think that would be a good friend for you JB! :)xxx

Just been checking out all your mom's assignments - you have kept her very busy JB, and she has taken some top photos. Costa Rica looks beautiful.
