    Love the pics.
    I'm so jealous.

    The laughing falcon is my favourite.

    I always thought toucans were just fictional characters.
    Next you'll be telling me that tigers are real too.

    The laughing falcon was really cool to see. Beautiful bird.

    Toucans..ha. Very cool to see them in real life, though. We even had a wonderful experience in watching their behavior in action. A white-throated flew into a tree in the canopy one afternoon, then proceeded to steal an egg out of an Oropendula nest, then was going for a second nest when a Roadside Hawk flew in, whereupon it flew away. So the second nest was saved by a Roadside Hawk! The whole time my friend and I were in the jungle, we felt as if we were in a giant zoo exhibit or bird/plant conservatory. But *it was real*.
