Top 10 birds I want to see

10. Capuchinbird

Reason: Is it a chainsaw or a cow? Nope, it's a capuchinbird's calls. It is said to sound like either of those two things.

9. Great Grey Owl

Reason: Who wouldn't want to see this bird? It's so beautiful, and when I think of it, I think of beauty and snow.

8. Hoopoe

Reason: Amazing bird, what can I say? I love every aspect of it. Its crest and its colours are awesome and unique.

7. Black Woodpecker

Reason: It's always been one of my favourite woodpeckers, mainly because of its looks and it reminds me of a pileated woodpecker.

6. Marvellous Spatuletail

Reason: Its tail is so amazing, especially how it can twirl it around! Plus, it's probably one of the rarest birds.

5. Gouldian Finch

Reason: Dressed it red, purple, yellow, green or orange and black; it is one of the most beautiful birds. It's also endangered. I wouldn't mind having a pair either!

4. Any of the Tangara tanagers

Reason: Green, red, blue, red, black, orange, rufous, etc.; they are some of the most beautiful birds in the world. The species pictured is green-and-gold, a perfect name for a neat bird!

3. Royal Flycatchers

Reason: Its crest, possibly? All species of the royal flycatchers have them. Even the females, even though they're yellowish. The species shown is northern.

2. Snowcap

Reason: The male is a dazzling dark purple with a white forehead. I think it is so beautiful. I've never seen such a beautiful bird!

1. Bee Hummingbird

Reason: World's smallest bird! Who wouldn't want to see the world's smallest bird? Plus, it's really cute! I love it!
