I would agree (not that I'm familiar with high-Andes birds). I guess the air is thinner and the fruits are smaller. That's got to be the smallest beak I've seen on a Toucan. Beautiful shot!

This is another medium-sized toucan, the Many Banded Aracari, which is found at sea level. Taken with the 100-400mm II + 1.4xTCIII on the 5DSR. The bird was over 30m away, and that lens camera-combo works reasonably well.
