One of the many animals I look forward to seeing upon arriving in Costa Rica each year is the Fiery-billed Aracaris. These beautiful birds are endemic to the southern pacific coastal region of Costa Rica and down into western Panama. Like other toucans, the Fiery-billed Aracaris is brightly coloured with a large bill. Both sexes are alike. The sharp loud call of this species is very similar to that of the Collared Aracaris.
