Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz:  Which one of these tropical birds is not considered a parrot?

A Toucan
B Cockatoo
C Parakeet

Toucans share habitat with parrots and enjoy a similar beloved place in human culture. An awkward-looking bird, the toucan has a stout body, short legs, and small wings, but an especially long bill, which has become its calling card. A toucan’s bill is sometimes more than half the length of its body.
Lightweight and maneuverable, a toucan’s bill aids in regulating body temperature and reaching into tree holes for food. It also comes in handy for plucking fruit, the toucan’s primary source of food.

The correct answer is Toucan.
