|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This Keel-billed Toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus)spent quite a while snacking on fruit in plain view of the Kéköldi bird watching tower. It was a rainy day, perfect for the yellows in the bird's plumage. The tower is in the Kéköldi Indigenous Reserve and the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Refuge. It is famous among birders as a staging area to observe the annual Raptor migration.|

Hello Karin, and welcome to TN.
It is exciting to see one of these gorgeous birds in the wild. I visited your beautiful country last summer and photographed one in the wild, but it was mostly hidden by the dense foliage, so I didn't post the photo. This particular bird has perched so nicely for you out in the open.
Costa Rica has some of the most interesting and colorful birds, insects and other wildlife that I have ever seen, so I look forward to viewing more of your photos in the future.
