Groove-billed Toucanet

It has a total length ca. 35 cm . It is, as other members of the genus Aulacorhynchus, mainly green. The throat is white and the ocular skin is blue. The bill is black with maroon markings, but the maroon is replaced by yellow in A. s. calorhynchus. This distinctive subspecies, which is found in the western part of the species' range, is sometimes considered a separate species, the Yellow-billed Toucanet , but it is vocally similar to the other subspecies and hybrids are known from the region where it comes into contact with A. s. sulcatus.
