If you are at the Iguassu Falls then you must pay a visit to the Parque Das Aves in Foz do Iguaçu on the Brazilian side of the border. They are located on the main road from the town out to the Falls. You can find out more about the bird park at http://www.parquedasaves.com.br/ although the site is currently being redeveloped and has no more than opening hours and an interactive Google Earth location map.

The park is devoted largely to Brazilian species, many of which are threatened, vulnerable or endangered, although there are some exotic species as well.

The first of two posts from there is of toucans and a few others. The second will be devoted to parrots.

The common toucan of the area which you should see in the wild on a visit to the Falls is the Toco Toucan



White-throated (Red-billed) Toucan



Red-breasted (Green-billed) Toucan



..and 2 of the smaller toucan species, the Spot-billed Toucanet



Black-necked Aracari



Now, a variety of other species.

Harpy Eagle



King Vulture



Azure Jay



Red-ruffed Fruitcrow



Bare-faced Curassow - male and female





Scarlet Ibis



Campo Troupial



Red-legged Seriema
