Toucan

The keel-billed toucan, also known as sulfur-breasted toucan or rainbow-billed toucan, is a colorful Latin American bird, found from southern Mexico to Venezuela and Colombia. It is the national bird of Belize. I used to have quite a few in Guatemala. I decided to paint one of these birds showing off their very colorful beak.
