I couldn't resist putting up this webcam shot - it's from the feeding station in Panama run by the Cornell University Ornithological Laboratory - we don't get birds like this in Sheffield

They don't seem to object to the free meal, Tom.
Tom Wilson: They are regular visitors, Ray - I've seen up to seven on the feeder at the same time!

i don't understand how you get these images
Tom Wilson: If you use Windows, you use an app called the Snipping Tool - https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots; on the Mac it is called Grab - then open the saved file in whichever program you use for photos, e.g., Elements or Photoshop or Lightroom.
Great! You don't really get birds like that in upstate New York, either... unless you're in the Ornithology Department at Cornell. smile My boss' twin daughters are both in their first year at Cornell.
Tom Wilson: I guess they are pretty high fliers - Cornell doesn't take dummies smile The feeder at Cornell has snow on it this morning! http://cams.allaboutbirds.org/channel/40/Cornell_Lab_FeederWatch_Cam/

Magnifiques toucans, j'aime leurs couleurs.
Tom Wilson: Fantastic aren't they?

Wowee - I wish we had them here in Bathamptonshire Tom!
Tom Wilson: They'd certainly bring a bit of colour!

Toucans are so recognisable Tom. I remember the beer advert, Look what toucan do.
Tom Wilson: They are indeed!
Fabulous color and details. really quite clear for a captured image like this.
Tom Wilson: I think a lot depends on the camera they use - I see others that are nowhere near as sharp.
Very good image as a capture from a video.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian
They are everywhere in Droitwich
Tom Wilson: I can imagine ;-)
Great details for a webcam...
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think it must be a pretty high quality cam!
