Collared Aracari Toucans
by Short on 10/02/10 05:24 PM

I took these pictures at Mystic River resort in Cayo. They have a feeder close to the restaurant. It is an awesome sight; the Aracaris behave just like cartoon figures (that is a quote from Captain Tom).

Just talked to Captain Tom today here on the island and he told me that they discovered a hollow tree where the Aracari are bathing and wobbling their behinds in the water. Thus he constructed an Aracari bathing facility in viewing distance of the restaurant. Although he is not sure, he hopes he will attract them for visitors at Mystic River Resort.
