Toucans, are members of the Neotropical near passerine bird family Ramphastidae. The Ramphastidae are most
closely related to the American barbets. They are brightly marked and have large, often-colorful bills. The
family includes five genera and over forty different species. Toucans are arboreal and typically lay 2-21 white eggs in their nests.
They make their nests in tree hollows and holes excavated by other animals such as woodpeckers–the toucan bill has very limited
use as an excavation tool. When the eggs hatch, the young emerge completely naked, without any down. Toucans are resident
breeders and do not migrate. Toucans are usually found in pairs or small flocks. They sometimes fence with their bills and wrestle,
which scientists hypothesize they do to establish dominance hierarchies.
Parrots, also known as psittacines, are birds of the roughly 393 species in 92 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found
in most tropical and subtropical regions. The order is subdivided into three superfamilies: the Psittacoidea (“true” parrots), the
Cacatuoidea (cockatoos), and the Strigopoidea (New Zealand parrots). Parrots have a generally pantropical distribution with
several species inhabiting temperate regions in the Southern Hemisphere, as well. The greatest diversity of parrots is in South
America and Australasia. Characteristic features of parrots include a strong, curved bill, an upright stance, strong legs, and clawed
zygodactyl feet. Many parrots are vividly coloured, and some are multi-coloured. Most parrots exhibit little or no sexual
dimorphism in the visual spectrum. They form the most variably sized bird order in terms of length.Toucans Parrot For sale
The most important components of most parrots’ diets are seeds, nuts, fruit, buds, and other plant material. A few species sometimes eat animals and carrion, while the lories and lorikeets are specialised for feeding on floral nectar and soft fruits. Almost all parrots nest in tree hollows (or nest boxes in captivity), and lay white eggs from which hatch altricial (helpless) young.
Parrots, along with ravens, crows, jays, and magpies, are among the most intelligent birds, and the ability of some species to imitate human voices enhances their popularity as pets. Trapping wild parrots for the pet trade, as well as hunting, habitat loss, and competition from invasive species, has diminished wild populations, with parrots being subjected to more exploitation than any other group of birds. Measures taken to conserve the habitats of some high-profile charismatic species have also protected
many of the less charismatic species living in the same ecosystems.
