The yellow-browed toucanet (Aulacorhynchus huallagae ) is a rare species of bird in the family Ramphastidae. Among the least known members of the family, it is endemic to humid forests growing on the east Andean slope in northern Peru.Show More
This species is extremely range-restricted and is known from only three small and relatively inaccessible locations in Peru: Cumpang/Utcubamba in La Libertad Region, Río Abiseo National Park, San Martín Region, and Leymebambe. It is threatened by habitat loss, and consequently considered endangered by IUCN.
This all-green toucanet has a distinctive short yellow line behind eye and blue breast-band. The blue-grey bill has a narrow white line at base blending into a white throat. The central tail feathers are tipped with chestnut. Uniquely among Aulacorhynchus toucanets, its vent is bright yellow. It is 37–44 cm (15–17 in) long and weighs 250–278 g (8.8–9.8 oz). It is very similar to the blue-banded toucanet, from which it differs mainly in the bill pattern.
The voice is a monotonously repeated short, dry rattling cuah cuah cuah.Show Less
