Spud, what a great tongue-twister. Far better than the thistle thistler's daughter!
Comment by Idaho Spud on January 12, 2013 at 10:20am

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!

Daily visitors and very welcome 

Thanks to Cheryl Smith from Birdcam Italia

These photos are so incredibly beautiful. Sparrows, Starlings, Crows, occasional Goldfinch come to my yard and I use food and bird recordings trying to tease in more in. 
With all these beautiful birds, we have to make sure they survive our chemicals and practices. 

Steph and Tony, thank you so very much.

Tony - those are great pictures. I love the Mandarin Duck and the King Vulture.
