Eagle Owls are also very pretty- never seen one like a Eurasian or a Malay Eagle Owl before, though I have seen a few Great Horned Owls. They were much larger than I thought they would be~

And do you live in the UK, Atropine? I read a lot of articles about the Barn Owl decline there due to the bad winter weather. I hope the population can recover over time...
Yep, I do. Last December 100 Barn Owls were found dead across the UK - we've had two harsh winters in a row so they barely had time to recover. I really hope that their population can start to rise again :/

I actually found an old article about it, and it mentions that rat poison is also a big factor in their decline: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12463744

Ah, ravens. I've always been interested in the Corvidae, ravens being my favorite species from the family. I love how most of the species in that family can mimic human words and other sounds they hear.

I've also always wanted a pet raven. XDD

My favorite is a tie between eagles, ravens, and sparrows

I've always wanted a pet crow named Rocky. And I always wanted one smart enough to use a computer like we always do. xD

I went to a park today and they had a birdwatching area - I managed to spot a few chaffinches which were very beautiful, and I also saw a Great Spotted Woodpecker :> There were plenty of ducks and Canada Geese too.

I would have to say a bird of paradise, at least the crested ones. They are so cool, orange and black.

I also have a story of a pigeon I took care of for a day. It had a broken wing, and died shortly after anyways. But, it was friendly, and I also love pigeons. There's a family of them on my roof:
Whitewing, a black hen with white wing tips and a white spot on back. (mom)
Romeo, a dappled black and white rooster. (dad)
Cookies, a black and white chick.
May, also black and white.
Bonanza, a regular dark gray rooster with pale gray wings and black stripes on them.
Bonanza tried to kill me today.

Mourning doves live on my street, also known as a Wood Pigeon. Not quite as friendly as the pigeons, who all love me!

Sounds nice ^^ I haven't gone birdwatching in a while, maybe I should. We do get quite a few woodpeckers, I usually only hear them though. Chaffinches are pretty, too =D
