Common Name: Ivory-billed Aracari
Scientific Name: Pteroglossus azara

Size: 13-14 inches (33-35.5 cm)

Habitat: South America. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

Status: Least Concern. Global Population: Population size has not been quantified but this species’ population appears to be in decline. Despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable.

Diet: Fruits, insects, frogs, lizards and bird eggs

Nesting: The Ivory Bill is one of the few dimorphic species of toucans. Males have black crowns whereas females are more rufous in color. Male beaks are also slightly longer.

All Ramphastids lay pure white, elliptical shaped eggs, usually 3-4 per clutch. Incubation for all species lasts 16 days, and young fledge the nest at 40-42 days.

Cool Facts: The Ivory Bill consists of three subspecies (P. a. azara, P. a. flavirostris, P. a. mariae).
