Birding Abroad: Crimson-rumped Toucanet.
The Amazon is full of surprises. Not only in Suriname, but also in other countries in South-America. When I was birding in Ecuador I saw this Crimson-rumped Toucanet. It lives in the cloud rainforest of Mindo, Ecuador.
I had to leave the lodge quite early as we had a long drive ahead. The piece of forest was on a private farm. The farm was near a hill and we had to climb a little before arriving at the feeding spot.
All sorts of fruits were set out to feed the birds and this was one of them; the Crimson-rumped Toucanet.
It is known that the Crimson-rumped Toucanet lives in the rainforest of Ecuador, Columbia and Venezuela. Even though its plumage is overall green, you can still recognize this toucanet by its maroon black bill with a white line at the base.
