The black-billed mountain toucan (Andigena nigrirostris), easily identified among the toucans by its entirely black bill, inhabits subtropical and temperate montane forests and cloud forests of Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela. It is most often found in areas with epiphytes and close to water, but also occurs in cultivated areas, open areas with fruiting trees, and in thickets. The mating ritual is a fun-loving affair for toucans, as they throw fruit to one another.
