Category of Toucans

Toucans are arboreal birds that normally build their nests with 2 to 21 white eggs. The toucan bill is extremely rarely used as an excavation tool because they build their nests in tree hollows and holes dug by other animals, including woodpeckers. The young hatch from the eggs absolutely naked and without any down.

Because they breed locally rather than migrating, toucans. Typically, toucans live in pairs or small flocks. Scientists believe that they occasionally engage in wrestling and fencing to build dominance hierarchies. Hornbills, an example of convergent evolution, occupy the toucans’ ecological niche throughout Africa and Asia.
