I have decided to start a blog, and it seems fitting that the first entry would include the animal that has inspired me.  Ramphastos toco, or the Toco Toucan (shown above) will likely be the subject of future blogs, but I wanted to name the blog after this South American bird as a tribute to the country that has hosted me for so many years (Brazil) to conduct research.

Otherwise, I have nothing yet interesting to write, but since I want to have a post to start this whole blog, here it is.
