Top Ten Coolest Birds


The Top Ten

1 Eagle Eagle Eagle is a common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae; it belongs to several groups of genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Eagles are also one of America's national symbols.

I'll bet you the #1 profile picture of any website on the internet with a bird is the bald eagle. Such a powerful bird, and a symbol of freedom. EAGLES RULE! - emraldYE

Eagles are awesome, and they deserve to be on the top of this list, I voted owls because I like owls, though. ALSO MOLTRES, HO HO AND OTHER POKEMON aren't SUPPOSED TO BE ON HERE!

I hate eagles, these stupid jerks, I hope golden eagles get killed slowly and painfully same with sea eagles, martial eagles too

In school we have those house things.. And it's my house bird. :)

It is cool too. - LemonComputer

The Contenders

11 Owl Owl Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about two hundred species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight.

Owl is the coolest (And like the ONLY REAL BIRD) on this list. And this is supposed to be a list of the coolest REAL birds, isn't it?

They're so beautiful and mysterious at the same time... What's not to love?

Owl is different bird, They sleep in morning and awake in night.

Owls aren't dumb, ugly and boring, you are! #OWLSRULE

12 Pelican Pelican Pelican is a post-metal quartet from Des Plaines, Illinois. Established in 2000, the band stems from their native post-metal scene and is known for their atmospheric and almost entirely instrumental style.

40 White Cockatoo

41 Dark-eyed Junco

I love them! Out of the about 10,000 or so birds, they're my favorite! They are very variable, and their forms can either have brown, pink, white, gray, or black feathers. Sure those colors aren't that breathtaking, but they don't look ugly. They breed in the boreal forest, and in winter they flood the US. They are also so cute and squishy. I only have the slate-colored kind in my area, but that's still fine with me.

Dark-eyed Junco for the win!

Actually a sparrow

45 Luzon Bleeding-Heart
