Toucan toby jug produced in China by Enesco of Itasca, Illinois, circa 1995. Toucans are members of the Neotropical near passerine bird family Ramphastidae and are most closely related to the American barbets. They are brightly marked and have large, often colorful bills. They make their nests in tree hollows and holes excavated by other animals such as woodpeckers-the toucan bill has very limited use as an excavation tool. Toucans are usually found in pairs or small flocks, are resident breeders and do not migrate. They sometimes fence with their bills and wrestle, which scientists hypothesize they do to establish dominance hierarchies. The toucan's tail feathers form the handle of the jug. This toucan, known as the Guinness Toucan, is an advertising symbol for the brewery dating back to 1936. An old Guinness ad copy states: Toucans in their nests agree, Guinness is good for you, try some and see what one or toucan do.
