Crimson rumped Toucanet
The Crimson rumped Toucanet is of medium size, with a grass-green plumage, and is typically found in humid tropical forests from the foothills to the highlands. It is often seen in pairs or small groups, either moving through the canopy or feeding on fruiting trees. One way to distinguish it from the Emerald Toucanet is to look for its all-dark maroon bill and red rump patch. You can identify its call by listening for a long series of repeated barking notes. You can spot them during our bird photography tours in the Chocó Andino in Ecuador.
