The Red-billed Toucan or White-throated Toucan is also a frequently seen bird in Kabalebo. Diurnal animals (active during the day) that are either spotted individually, in pairs or in small groups.
Their diet: fruits (papaja/mango), berries (podosiri/kumbu), insects, nestlings, frogs and lizards.
I have witnessed countless times how tanagers or flycatchers bravely tried to chase them away from their chicks.
Red-billed Toucans are arboreal birds that are also agile and noisy birds. During the mornings and late afternoons they 'treat' you with their 'serenade' call. A call that I can best describe as a puppy calling, stuck high up in a tree.
I was able to record their 'serenade' call. Enjoy!
