What's your favourite bird?

Before you say Naomi Campbell or similar...
The votes are in and counted and the robin has come out on top, second is the blackbird and third is the barn owl.
I think a peacock is the one for me...
Taken at Paignton Zoo.
With an eagle a close 2nd.

After bringing up many young, over the years because of cats, it has to be Blackbirds.

Re: What's your favourtite bird?

Not sure if I have a favourite. We get the Robin who visits ( more than he should or used to? ) and we have a pair of Magpies that reside in the tall trees out the back which I have grown fond of.

Robin.
We have at least one who comes round almost every day, for a drink & a nibble.
(Plus Husband & Wife Wood Pigeons, and several very small birds too)

Chicken, cos they taste great, they lay eggs, and they're so damned funny to watch... Grin
