The Plate-billed Mountain Toucan, Andigena laminirostris, is named for the yellow rectangular ‘plate’ on its bill.
I was lucky to film and sketch this species during my travels in Ecuador at several locations including Milpe Bird Sanctuary.
This species is listed as ‘Near Threatened’ due to habitat loss and a restricted range within the Chocó Bioregion of southern Colombia and Northern Ecuador. They inhabit wet montane forests that are dripping with bromeliads, mosses, and other epiphytes.
This piece is part of a series I created for a show at the Winter Wings Birding Festival in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where I was the featured artist in 2022.
