Toucan toby jug produced in France circa 1970. Toucans are Neotropical members of the near passerine bird family Ramphastidae. They are brightly marked and have large, often colorful bills. Toucans are arboreal and typically lay two to four white eggs in their nests.
They make their nests in tree hollows and holes excavated by other animals such as woodpeckers. Toucans are resident breeders and do not migrate. Toucans are usually found in pairs or small flocks.
They sometimes fence with their bills and wrestle to establish dominance hierarchies.
