  • Tape lure - And that means....? KDS4444Talk 22:06, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Tail feathers - we have an article on flight feathers, and "bird wing" redirects to bird flight, but the tail feathers are very different and seem to warrant their own article, esp. as there appear to be several distinct types (wedge, stub, streamer, etc.). See here and here for two starter references. KDS4444Talk 22:02, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Toucans as pets - seem to be growing in popularity as pets, from what I've read. Maybe enough info out there to create a centralized article? Or perhaps at Companion toucan? --Kurt Shaped Box (talk) 07:45, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
This feels like it belongs as just a section under Toucan, though, doesn't it? Not that it isn't a large subject, only that people looking for this kind of information are going to be looking under "toucan" before they go to "toucans as pets". KDS4444Talk 22:04, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
