This was yet another exciting opportunity. Someone at the Lodge had told Greg about some nesting Collared Aracari not too far from the Lodge. We headed there the next morning before breakfast, and spent a little over an hour shooting these gorgeous birds. If you look carefully, you'll see the eye and tip of the beak of the chick at the opening to the nest just behind the head and beak of the adult!
