Toucans

Toucans

Toucans, however, are now well known to be eminently arboreal birds and to belong to a group including trogons, parrots, and barbets- all of whose members are fruit eaters.

The purpose of the enormous bill here becomes evident; it is to enable the Toucan to reach and devour fruit while remaining seated, thus to counterbalance the disadvantage which its heavy its heavy body and gluttonous appetite would otherwise give it in the competition with allied groups of birds.
