Comments: A Chestnut-mandibled toucan surveys his domain as dawn breaks over the rainforest in the La Selva Biological Reserve. Costa Rica.The Chestnut-mandibled Toucan, or Swainson’s Toucan (Ramphastos ambiguus swainsonii) is a near-passerine bird which breeds from eastern Honduras to northern Colombia to western Ecuador. Small flocks, usually consisting of 3-12 birds, move through the forest with an undulating flight, rarely travelling more than 100 m at a time. This species is primarily an arboreal fruit-eater, but will also take insects, lizards, eggs, and frogs. Flocks will follow Keel-billed Toucans to exploit their sources of food.
