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?

Wonderful eagles!

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

I love it Spud!  My Grandma used to have a bunch of those she'd say.

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!

Thanks so very much for the links Patricia.

I'm glad you and your daughter like the Toucan booklover.

My daughter especially likes the Toucan!  Cool that you have an Eagle count Patricia!
