Factoid: The (Ramphastos sulfuratus), also known as Sulfur-breasted or Rainbow-billed Toucan, is a colorful Latin American member of the toucan family. It is the national bird of Belize.

A very productive morning, very close to Nicaragua . Seems the keel billed mafia, loves to fly in invade the berry laden trees. A bit of a chore to photograph as they are quite the hoppers, and tend to not sit for long. Despite dark, and over cast conditions, patience pays off….

It was a fantastic am to watch them select the best berries, throw their bills up, and catch them as they rolled down the hatch, all the time never taking their eyes off the suspicious photographers!
