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!

Eagle is the best! Philippine's national bird!

Eagles are the American symbol, and there is nothing not to love about them. my parents are the owners of a zoo and I love our 2 American bald eagles

40 Canary
41 White Cockatoo

They can turn there head into a umbrella

42 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
