Gray breasted Mountain Toucan

Andigena hypoglauca

The Gray breasted Mountain Toucan is a beautiful bird from the Ramphastidae family found in the high Andean cloud forest. Its bill is distinctively colored with stripes of coral, black, and yellow, which sets it apart from other mountain toucans. It has a gray breast and yellow eyes in most parts of Peru, but dark eyes elsewhere in its range. This toucan is usually seen in pairs or small groups, feeding in the forest canopy, and can be quite vocal, emitting long, rising screams or short, excited yaps. You can see it on our luxury bird photography tours.
