BIRD OF THE WEEK — GRAY-BREASTED MOUNTAIN-TOUCAN — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

BIRD OF THE WEEK

GRAY-BREASTED MOUNTAIN-TOUCAN

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Andigena hypoglauca 
POPULATION: Unknown
IUCN STATUS: Near Threatened
TREND: Decreasing
HABITAT: Cloud forest in Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.

The colorful Gray-breasted Mountain-Toucan inhabits chilly, damp, mountainous terrain, unlike its larger lowland relatives the Channel-billed and Keel-billed Toucans. In fact, its genus name Andigena means “coming from the Andes Mountains” — a nod to this toucan’s sloping habitat.

The Gray-breasted Mountain-Toucan can be differentiated from the three other mountain-toucan species by its red-, yellow-, and black-banded bill and, in one subspecies, its piercing yellow eyes.

Hundreds of bird species are on a track toward extinction. If these species blink out, we’ll have just one species to blame: ours — Marvelous Spatuletail — PLANET EARTH FLOWERS group

PLANET EARTH FLOWERS has over 2,000 members and over 87,000 photos and videos.

Contest — Purple or Blue Flowers

The male Marvelous Spatuletail is a striking, high-energy spectacle, brandishing the purplish-blue spatules on its tail like a pair of castanets.

The birds wave these spatules around during communal courtship displays, which draw visiting females to observe and select a mate.
