Green Aracari Toucan


The species is named for the green feathers covering its back. Males’ crowns are black, while females’ are reddish-brown.


In the wild
It is found in the lowland forests of northeastern South America (the Guiana Shield), in the northeast Amazon Basin, the Guianas and the eastern Orinoco River drainage of Venezuela.


Its diet consists mostly of fruit, including the fruits of Cecropia trees and the palm Oenocarpus bacaba. The serrated edges of the green aracari’s large bill help the bird to grip and gather fruit. Insects are also an occasional part of the diet, giving the birds protein
