We saw toucans in the wild in Central America, but I couldn’t get up close to observe them until we saw them in a cage at Belize Zoo. I spent ages observing a number of them which had been rescued and brought back to nearly full health having been injured, so they were unsuitable for release. This species is the keel-billed toucan, which is the national bird of Belize. I don’t know if they were more interested in me than I was in them! Such curious birds!
The buyer of this painting, Mary Ann from Oregon, said:
“A few months ago I was searching around for a birthday gift for my husband. He is an avid birder, so I checked out Jane’s bird paintings. I showed him her work and he absolutely fell in love with ‘The toucan is a curious bird’. Robert’s reaction was enough for me, so I bought the painting for him and it is now enhancing our dining room. Last month we had people over and he very proudly showed off the new painting. Jane’s work is even better in the “flesh” so to speak than on the web. She is technically a master but even better her paintings have life.”

When starlings congregate in vast groups and dance in the evening sky before going to roost, it's called a murmuration.
