Channel-billed Toucans (Ramphastos vitellinus) are just like the Red-billed Toucans very common in Kabalebo. But unlike the Red-billed, the Channel-billed is less frequently seen out in the open.
Most of the time they are sitting high up in a tree. This makes it difficult to take a great picture of them. Unless you have a 'CANON' of a lens. But once the Channel-billed Toucan was nice for me and was sitting on a lower level.
Channel-billed Toucans are either seen alone, in pairs or with the Red-billed Toucans. They like to eat ripe berries, insects, frogs/toads, lizards and hatchlings. Which also means that they are not welcome near flycatchers' and tanagers' nests.
Unlike the Red-billed Toucan, the Channel-billed Toucan has a strange call. For me it sounds more like a screeching kind of sound. It doesn't sound pretty, that is for sure.
You'll be the judge!
