When is the last time you tossed your loved one some fruit? Fruit tossing is a common toucan courtship behavior.

Gould's Toucanets

Toucanets are the smallest birds in the Toucan family (Toucanets, Aracaris, Toucans). The Gould's Toucanets are found south of the Amazon across Brazil to northeast Bolivia.

Most toucanets are sexually dimorphic. The male Gould's Toucan's plumage below is black, as is his crown and nape. These areas are chestnut-colored in the female.

As part of the courtship display, the male Gould's Toucan flies skyward with his tail cocked, then drops down while uttering a series of frog-like croaks. This display is repeated several times for a few minutes. The pair will also throw fruit to one another, each catching it, in their bill.

Rendered in Poser 2012 without postwork. Model credits: Forest Superior (Andrey Pestryakov) and Gould's Toucanets from Songbird Remix Toucans2 (Ken Gilliland)
