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.

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!

Spud, what a great tongue-twister. Far better than the thistle thistler's daughter!
