Patricia thanks for the bird count link.
Tony I love the Swan and Puffin photo. Beautiful!
Booklover that owl photo is really funny - thank you!
Thank you all for being here and posting your pictures and thoughts.

Tony, the eagles look so regal and the little swan family look well protected. Puffins look alert and safe up on the cliff. 

booklover, another good shot of owls; You do like them!

Patriia, that is a good article you sent. Enjoying it.

Melinda, I like the owl peeking out of his fort :)

Thanks Patricia.  Spawning Salmon, that explains it, but I'm still amazed that they come by the thousands.

Melinda, did your grandmother have more than one about Tucans?

Joan, I've not heard the thistle thistler's daughter.  I sounds like it would be difficult to pronounce.

Tony, I didn't know eagles congregated.  Perhaps there's an abundance of food there?

Comment by Tony Carroll on January 13, 2013 at 4:47am

Wonderful eagles!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 12, 2013 at 2:37pm
Spud, what a great tongue-twister. Far better than the thistle thistler's daughter!

Wow!  What an outstanding bird.

Can a toucan can-can?
A can-canning toucan can.
Can two can-canning toucans chat to two toucans with two cans connected by string?
They can too those crafty toucans!
Well two can. Two cunning, canny, can-canning toucans with two cans,
who know two other cunningly uncanny can-canning toucans with two cans can.
Only, however, if the two toucans, and they too,
can can the can-canning long enough to talk on two cans with two toucans.
The question thus is this: Can a toucan not can-can?
A toucan with two left feet can!
