Edward Munoz photographed this keeled toucan near Lago del Lagarto Lodge in Boca Tapada, Costa Rica.

“The lodge is in the rainforest and promotes environmental protection through an international 501c organization called Images for Conservation,” says Edward. “The lodge has several shades and platforms overlooking natural areas where a variety of birds visit and roost.” He titled the photo “Colored Perch”.
