Favorite Breed of Bird/General Bird Discussion

Post by Fawnir » Tue Aug 25, 2009 10:41 pm

Mine is a peacock. I own one myself. His name is Argus after the many myths of egyptians and greeks. I fell in love with them when I visited the zoo. Mine is an India blue silver pied male that is three years old. I just love how beautiful they are and they are very inspiring to watch. especial around mating season when they are very vocal and love to show off their plumage.

Does anyone have a favorite bird and why?

I don't believe they are called 'breeds' of birds. Just different bird species.

Well, if I had to pick, either the Red Tailed Hawk or the red wing blackbird.

My favorite species of bird would either be the Kiwi or the Puffin.

Wow! You own a peacock? You are so lucky! I own 10 chickens, yeah they're kinda cute but not half a glamorous as a peacock!
I like...um...ruby-throated humming birds. Yeah.
I watch in awe as each shard of fallen twilight descends at my paws, at first glance they look like small segments of jewels, of Ruby, emerald, sapphire, amber and onyx. Then I raise my head to the shattered sky and howl defiantly.

You know I think you are right, I think that they are just species. But you all love great birds. I got Argus for a graduation present because I just loved them to much. He has molted all his feathers because mating season is over so now the pen is a big white feathered mess. He looks like a peahen and very goofy when he fans out with only a foot and a half long tail.

Birds are my absulute favorite animal, but I do have a few favorite birds. All of these birds below are number 1 on my list.

Chicken
Secretary Bird
Raven
Hooded Pitohui
All members of The Parrot Family.

Sure there are breeds of birds, they are specific species.
For example, chickens are species, but the Golden Penciled Hamburg Bantam is a breed of that species.

Osprey's. Boy, are they amazing. It's mesmerizing to see them fish with their claws. I love birds of prey. And maybe the cute little tiny chubby ones too.

My favorite species of bird is the Whooper Swan (Cygnus cygnus). It is the national bird of my country, not to mention it is a very beautiful bird. Ugly Duckling, anyone? ;)

For looks, I would have to vote Golden Eagle, they are graceful. But I love the call of the Morning Dove too.

I like lovebirds--but those are housepets..

For wild birds I like morning doves.
In our backyard this summer we had two nests with chicks. One nest lived but the other was destroyed by hungry hawks.
