Adds North American toucans (Ramphastos giganteum) to Minecraft! These birds are most commonly found in the subtropical and temperate forests, wetlands, open woodlands, and more open spaces across North America, making it the only species of toucan native to the United States and Canada, but can be found in boreal forests as well. Similar in size to the closely-related toco toucan (Ramphastos toco), the North American toucan is one of the largest toucan and is known for a red "capped" coloration on top and behind its head. As in other toucan species, the North American toucan primarily eats fruits, nuts, and pinecones using its bill to pluck them from trees, but also insects, frogs, small reptiles, small birds and their eggs and nestlings. The long bill is useful for reaching things that otherwise would be out-of-reach. It is typically seen in pairs or small groups. In flight it alternates between a burst of rapid flaps with the relatively short, rounded wings, and gliding. The reproductive season of the North American toucan extends approximately from the end of April to the end of July. The nest is typically placed high in a tree and consists of a cavity, at least part of which is excavated by the parent birds themselves. It has also been recorded nesting in holes in earth-banks and terrestrial termite-nests. Their reproduction cycle is annual. The female usually lays two to four eggs a few days after mating. The eggs are incubated by both sexes and hatch after 17–18 days. These birds are very protective of themselves and their chicks. Because it prefers open habitats, the North American toucan is likely to benefit from the widespread deforestation in tropical South America. It has a large range and except in the outer regions of its range, it typically is fairly common. It is therefore considered to be of Least Concern by BirdLife International.

I'm kidding, this species of toucan doesn't exist in real life, and is just a fan-made North American bird. I hope you enjoyed this first wave of fictional native American birds. XD
