Pale-mandibled Aracari

Pteroglossus torquatus erythropygius

Buenaventura, Ecuador - January 2013

Pale-mandibled Aracari is sometimes treated as full species in its own right but, due to frequent interbreeding at contact zones in NW Ecuador and SW Columbia, it is better treated as a subspecies of Collared Aracari (P. torquatus).
