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.

Spud, no, hers weren't about toucans.  They were just random.   One I can't remember started with something like "Betty Botter bought a bit of bitter butter".  Even that line could be wrong.  It went on to say it made her batter bitter... lol.  That was just one of many.

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?
