Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Doves and pigeons are the same thing, just colored differently.

The best bird is the chicken, because it's delicious.

I chime in with a vote for crow or raven--let's just say corvus, yeah--those awesomely crafty myth-making mofos.

Though if we're going for food-birds, then I say whatever's the best on the menu tonight, garcon!

Quail tastes the best...

Depends. Quail win in the so darn cute category, I love watching them scurry about the yard. I like to wake up to their "Chigaco" call too. That's totally what it sounds like they're saying.

Hawks take the cool factor prize.
Hummingbirds take the "woah" prize.

Although phoenixes would win hands down if, you know, they existed.

Besides, ducks can walk, fly and swim pretty well. How many other birds can do that? Ok, geese can do that too.

Definitely have to agree with those posters who cite the corvids. Ravens are probably right up there at the top for majesty, and crows are probably one of the most intelligent creatures on earth.

There's no way I could pick just one. They all have some awesome attributes, the crow being by far the smartest. And vultures are really cool doing way more than we give credit for. Although, I would like to see pelicans up there too .

Cardinal. Not because there's some sports team named after them, but because of their beautiful color and wonderful family manner.
