The Ramphastos dicolorus, also known as sulfur-breasted toucan, keel toucan, or rainbow-billed toucan, is a colorful Latin American member of the toucan family.

The Ramphastos dicolorus or Green Billed Toucan is 17 to 19 in. long and weighs 9.3 to 14 oz and is the smallest member of genus Ramphastos.

The sexes are alike though the female’s bill is shorter than the male’s. Their bill is mostly green to green-yellow, with a vertical black line at its base, red and ivory tomial “teeth”, and some green striations on the maxilla.

Their crown, nape, upperparts, and tail are black but for red uppertail coverts. Their face is yellow with bare red, blue, and yellow-green skin around the eye.

Their throat and breast are yellow with a red area within the lower breast. Their belly and undertail coverts are red and their flanks black.

The Ramphastos dicolorus or Green Billed Toucan is one of the “croaker” group of toucans. Its song is a “loud, raucous ‘WRèh’ or ‘niuh’.” Other vocalizations are a “long series of noisy honking ‘grrekk’ notes” and “low ‘ek’, ‘zneep’, and growl-like begging”. It also claps its bill and rattles its tongue in the bill.

The Green Billed Toucan is found from Tocantins, Minas Gerais, and Espírito Santo in south-central, east-central, and southeastern Brazil south through eastern Paraguay, Bolivia and into northern Argentina’s Formosa, Chaco, Corrientes, and Misiones provinces.

It primarily inhabits subtropical and tropical, sub-montane and montane forest, but also scrublands, savanna with trees, and plantations. In elevation it mostly ranges between 300 and 4,900 ft.

The red-breasted toucan feeds mostly on fruits, of both native and introduced plants as well as green coffee beans and fruit in orchards.

It also feeds on insects and small birds. It usually forages in pairs and small groups but 20 or more may gather at times. It usually forages in the forest canopy but will pick up fallen fruit from the ground.

The Ramphastos dicolorus or Green Billed Toucan breeds between October and February in the southern part of its range and from January to June in the north. Pairs are territorial.

The clutch size is two to four eggs. Both adults incubate the eggs and both provision nestlings. The incubation period is about 16 to 19 days and fledging occurs 40 to 50 days after hatch.

Young toucans do not have a large bill at birth, it grows as they develop and does not become full size for several months.

It’s believed that toucans can live up to 20 years in the wild, however, in zoos, the toucan’s life span does decrease to around 18 years as an average.
