Toucan

This is another rescue animal.  Most of these animals at the sanctuary were once pets.  I am not sure what happened to this toucan, but as you can see all of his tail feathers are missing.  The owner of the rescue is able to walk into the enclosure and feed the birds.  He was throwing up pieces of banana for this toucan and he was catching them right out of the air.  It was neat to watch.  Most of the birds are free to fly away if they choose, but they stay right there.  Even the scarlet macaws that fly around the property stay there.  There was one poor parrot that had a broken beak and we were breaking open the peanuts and hand feeding him.  It was truly an amazing experience that day.
