I was just curious if any of you bird lovers knew that over the past couple of years they have been breeding African Grey's and making new mutations, so there are now other colours of this bird, not just grey.

Also, since it is summer now here, there are all these baby magpies around -- it's adorable. We have a bird bath in our backyard and they've been taking to it quite well! Even the parents will come towards us and ask for corn. c:

I love that bird, I saw a documentary featuring it imitating sounds the other day. I don't really have a favourite bird, I like a lot of them.

I love Red-tailed Hawks. There is one that flies around my neighborhood, and I see if every now-and-then. It's beautiful, and I like the hawk sound they make. :)

I also like Battler Eagles. :)

^ I've seen a lot of Red-tailed Hawks in the past year or so out by the highway. They're usually just out on a branch, chilling out. I love to count how many I see on road trips, as they are very beautiful raptors when you can spot them^^

Lately I've taken a liking to Spotted Owls, particularly Northern Spotted Owls due to the political/ecological issues that surround them and their endangerment. All owls are cool beans to me though, and all birds are awesome too~

Barn Owls are a favorite of mine as well, and Short Eared Owls are just stunning~
The subspecies for Short Eared Owls can look pretty awesome too, like the Galapagos Short Eared Owl:

(I have no idea if the font color a chose will show up so apologize if you can't see this!)

My top favorite bird is the raven. This bird of mischief hits me more than just to call it a favorite of mine though. I look to the raven with a sense of relation, it's a complete symbolization of me. From the outside to the inside the raven and I share characteristics that I've never seen in an animal before. Wanna hear something weird? I've loved the raven before I even KNEW I loved the raven! Doesn't seem to make sense, so I'll explain. When I was much younger I would race to the television at the proper time when my favorite show (you might reconize this show if you watch cartoon network) Teen Titans came on. It's just another super hero show based off comic books, but one of the characters hit me with awe. One of the main characters but most misunderstood and an outcast was Raven. The hero herself related to me deeply already, quiet, socially outcasted and a bit dark. And in skits here and there in the show Raven's powers would manifestate in the form of the dark bird. It was at those times where I found myself fascinated. every single time a raven bird appeared in Raven's moments I would lean forward so soak up every detail. But the love of my beloved raven had only begun. After thinking about it, I realized how much that large bird and I had in common. The love is still strong today and I hope when I get my chance to work with ravens, I'll be able to keep one myself. Legally of course.
It bewilders me of how much alikeness the raven shares with me. On the outside, the raven bares dark and dreadful, as do I. I almost appear grim and cold. I know this seeing the way people approach me with caution. On the inside however, is quite a different story, if you know my beloved bird, you would know that it is not what it seems. The raven is a humorous and goofy, as am I. I also have a very meschevious side... people, when around me after a time are surprised at the goofy personality I have after seeing such a shadowy person before. I've come to believe that whatever animal a person favorites and loves it is a cool manifestation of our own personalities and feelings.
