We had a toucan when I was a kid.  Some jacka** had shot it.  We had a
neighbor that was a vet, and with him in tow my Dad and I went and
captured the injured bird.  We nursed it back to health and eventually
sold it to an exotic animal store for breeding.

The main thing that I remember about the toucan (that we "cleverly" named "Tooey") was that it liked to bite us.  A lot.  Let's hope that the girl in this video, uploaded by BirdTricks
on October 29, 2011, doesn't have the scars on her arms that I do...

Even with my scars, I'll never forget how beautiful that bird was; very similar to the one in the video, actually.

If you have any exotic bird experiences, let us know!
