Toucans are neo-tropical birds that have a heavy bill. They are varied from 12-24 inches (30.5-61 cm) in length, and are distinguished by their heavy bills. They are fruit eating birds and are brightly colored. They have short round wings and have legs that are short with toes arranged in the zygodactyls pattern (2 toes front and 2 toes back). The sexes are alike in coloration, but are duller in males. Most toucans are gregarious, occurring in small flocks that roam together in the treetops foraging. Toucans lack elaborate songs but rather give harsh hard calls. Due to habitat destruction toucans are declining and are in immediate danger of extinction.
