I could say, it flew off again … but this time not until I had the pleasure of recording a few quick snaps. I was outside taking pictures of a large Montezuma oropendola when a toucan settled just a few branches over in the same tree. Just like that!
I wish, I could’ve gotten closer, but this is better than hearing the croaking & clanking all around us and never to see more than a colorful blur against the sky.
Now that the Keel-billed Toucan, Ramphastos sulfuratus, has left, let’s look at the Montezuma oropendola, Psarocolius montezuma. It was very entertaining to watch him groom himself while basking in the first rays of the morning sun.
I may have been detected!
