Toucan at Breakfast

Yesterday morning at the beginning of my last full day at Chachagua Rainforest we had a Yellow-throated Toucan (eBird link) juvenile join those of us who were early enough. The waiter was feeding him fresh papaya which he enjoyed, but after a while he seemed to gaze into the forest where his momma taught him to find food and he was back into his natural habitat. But a few of us enjoyed his brief visit with the humans! 🙂 4 photos . . .

Life in the rainforest!

¡Pura Vida!

And my Yellow-throated Toucan Gallery for more photos of this bird and be sure to see the shot of one eating a lizard! They are omnivorous! 🙂

  1. Charlie, I can surely see why Costa Rica has provided so much pleasure ! I am happy for you. And…just a little bit jealous. Best wishes to you from a 93 degree- high humidity-pollen infested-Toucanless Nashville!😇

    1. 🙂 Wellllll . . . I had some good days in Nashville, but I’m really glad to be finishing out life here! I even get an occasional toucan in my rent house garden in Atenas, along with many other reasons I love it here! Pura vida!

  2. I love it Charlie! Not many people can say they had a toucan at the breakfast table (and not the one on the cereal box)!
