Toucan national bird of Belize found at Clarissa Falls, Belize
The TOUCAN is the National Bird of Belize. When I have tourists guests at Falconview Backpackers Adventure Hostel, I like to make sure they lunch and swim at Clarissa Falls, because under the thatch roof restaurant, they have two wild TOUCANS raised by the owner and one of them a real pet and much photographed bird, has broken the tip of the top beak and so must come to the restaurant from the wild, to get the fruit the owner slices up in bite sized pieces. This makes the visit to Clarissa Falls all the more memorable for that.
