Listen to a Swainson Toucan

I was obviously trying to be really sneaky when filming this video of my Swainson toucan, Meaka, while she was making noise. So it's not the most fun video to watch as I wanted footage of her actually crying for people to see how different the body language is from a parrot's but you can't really so I failed at obtaining that. However, you can hear it so I at least got that achieved. The Swainson Toucan is one of two, I believe, types of toucans that is known as a "screamer" the others are all known as "croakers" and do not make the high-pitched sounds that Swainson's do.
