Toucan Photo - Macaw Mountain

Kirsten Hubbard
Our Macaw Mountain photo tour begins with this photo of a toucan -- a Keel-Billed Toucan, to be exact. I'm not sure why, but he was missing most of his tail feathers.

The Macaw Mountain Bird Park & Nature Reserve in Copan, Honduras is only a few minutes from the Copan ruins. Macaw Mountain includes one of the last old-growth forests in the Copan region of Honduras. More than a shady respite after a morning trekking the Maya site, Macaw Mountain is a fully interactive wildlife immersion experience.

Macaw Mountain isn't home to macaws alone: visitors will find owls, toucanets, amazons, other species of parrot, and of course, toucans! Keel-Billed Toucans can be found all throughout Central America, from the southern part of Mexico to the northern part of South America. In fact, they're the national bird of Belize.

The national bird of Honduras is the Scarlet Macaw...
