Brazil in pictures: toucan

Tucán toco / Toco toucan

At the Parque das Aves (bird park), on the Brazilian side of the Iguazu falls, you can get so close to the toucans, free to roam inside huge cages, that you can’t help fearing for the safety of your zoom lens and some of your fingers too. Just as well toucans are inquisitive but not aggressive. Ah, the beak is made of a very light material, otherwise the bird couldn’t possibly fly.

    pav, actually, you won’t be allowed to feed the toucans at the Parque das Aves. It’s a zoo, after all. Don’t feed the animals and all that, you know?
