There was once a bird in the forest that was completely black, except for his white eyes, who was laughed at by all the other animals because he did not have a name. So he goes to seek his fortune - and perhaps find a name!
A modern fable that answers the question 'How did the toucan get its name?' - and also incidentally his amazing colours!
