Toucans and Parrots
Toucans are one of the most representative bird families of the tropics. They are normally easy to see and sometimes easy to photograph as well depending on the time of the year.
Parrots are normally harder to photograph and they can be seen flying in flocks and being a little noisy sometimes.
