If you want a challenge then try to complete the Toucan exercise using all 16 birds plus you now get 3 outgroup examples (the last 3 with whiskers). I've added the file with the bird pictures to the links at the top right. As you can see some of the birds that look the most similar are already grouped into the same genus. Don't let that distract you, these may, or may not, be appropriate. I'll have a crack at this so let me know if you want to compare Toucan phylogenies....
