Red-breasted toucan

A small beaked toucan that looks like it came straight from a Halloween party

A near-passerine bird may be found in southern and eastern Brazil, Bolivia’s Pantanal, eastern Paraguay, and far northeastern Argentina. The Atlantic Forest is its native habitat. However, because it occurs so frequently, it is of minor importance.

The green-billed toucan, sometimes known as the red-breasted toucan, eats a wide variety of fruits and plants and hence plays a vital role in seed dissemination in the subtropical Atlantic forest. This species also serves as a nest predator, preying on the eggs of other bird species. Carnivorous birds regard this toucan to be a prey bird.
