Made an unplanned trip to the Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic this afternoon to deliver this unfortunate toucan found on the ground under our banana trees. It was alert - and biting! - but its legs didn't work and it couldn't fly. We threw a towel over it, wrapped it and put it in a box for the trip. The toucan was asleep when we got there, but woke up and started snapping again when the vets tried to take a look. They didn't find any immediate problems, but we left it there, in good hands, getting ready for X-rays and a full exam. Hoping for the best, and updates to follow.
