Collared Aracari (Costa Rica)

Posted by birder on Tuesday, July 30, 2013
On my recent Costa Rica trip, I managed to see and photograph four of the six species of toucan that can be found in Costa Rica.

The Collared Aracari is a smaller species of toucan that is quite common in many areas of Costa Rica. This photo was taken at the Costa Rica Nature Pavilion in the Sarapiqui area of Costa Rica. The pavilion has feeders that bring in many species of tanagers, Red-legged and Green Honeycreepers, Rufous Motmots, Clay-colored Thrushes, Keel-billed Toucans, Collared Aracaris, and more. The paths around the pavilion are also great habitat for birds like White-collared Manakin. Another treat of the pavilion are Poison Dart Frogs on the trails by the river.

Here is a photo of a Collared Aracari coming for some bananas:
