The Top Ten

1 Bald Eagle Bald Eagle

America's bird! Strong, majestic, and I just love the snow-white head. The can go up to 10,000 feet in the air! And they can soar air currents for many hours straight, no rest. Their nest can way up to one ton!


Aside the America's bird, this bird is actually the strongest of all birds.

The bird of United States - ElSherlock

3 Parrot Parrot Parrots, also known as psittacines, are birds of the roughly 393 species in 92 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions.

They're cute because they imitate human speech.

I'm not sure about parrot, but my favorite type of parrot is the Double Yellow Headed Amazon Parrot,

Also known as the Mexican headed, or yellow headed amazon.

I study Amazon Parrots.

7 Andean Flamingo
8 King Penguin

Both parents show equal care for their chick. They go fishing together and will fight to their death to defend their chick against skuas, parasitic jaegers, and mammals. Even with climate change, this bird will definitely survive due to its resilience.

34 Red Tailed Hawk
35 Great Blue Heron

I love them.

36 Common Myna

I know they're pests, but I love them anyway. I rescued a baby one that fell out of a coconut tree, and we taught him (there's no way to tell the gender, so we went with 'him') to talk. His name is Figley (I know, but, it's grown on me). Here's why they're cool:

1. THEY'RE SMART. Mom can ask him what the chicken says, and he'll say "Bock bock bock bock! " Smart bird. He can finish my mom's sentences, too. Mom will say "I can talk, can-" and then Figley will interupt and say "You fly? " Completing the phrase.

2. THEY'RE LIKE FLYING PUPPIES. Figley is basically a talking, flying puppy. He sometimes drools, takes baths and shakes water all over us, and plays fetch (yeah, you read that correctly! ), and greets us when we come home. He is also like a cat because he chases string.

3. THEY'RE TICKLISH. When a bird shakes its tail, it's basically like laughing. Figley was taught how to laugh, too. So when Figley leaps in front of mom's mouth, ...more

37 Duck Duck Duck is the common name for a large number of species in the waterfowl family Anatidae, which also includes swans and geese.
