Did you know that three of these make a six-pack?

(Bad joke. But it seems to always get a laugh.)

I really look forward to your emails. Thanks.

Hi there, I have a lithograph( I think) of No 6 Toucan, I bought it and 2 parrots(Variete du Lori a collier + Le Perroquela Calotte Bleue) and enjoy them. I am thinking of moving things around in the lounge, my new plan would put my Toucan in the light from the window.. I was thinking this would highlight the pic. Then thought "oh it might fade", Do you know if my lithograph is a cheapy or should I keep it out of the light? If they are cheapies I could try to get more toucans, as I my google search has shouwn all the ones above and they are great, I would love to get more.. I like the proud Toucan pic more than the green/yellow red/green budgie ones. Whatever result I am going to check out all the other birds that Levaillant, F. and Barraband did so good, I have learnt something, Thanks in advance, judy
