Photographer's Note

Perhaps it's not the most original picture of a Tucano, but I still think this composition brings out the colours of the bird in the best possible way.

This "Tucan Grande" (English name: Toco Toucan) is a common bird in the forest surrounding the Iguazu Falls. It is very difficult to photograph them in freedom, so I have to admit that this picture was taken in a large voliere in a bird's park. This park ("Park des Aves") is located across the street near the heliport, so if you have to wait for your flight for a couple of hours you can always have a look at the birds!
