Theoretically if you could be any bird what would it be (conciseness counts) and why.

I would be an African penguin (Spheniscus demersus)

This is because it is my favorite penguin and penguins are my favorite bird.

Like me they are different and they embrace it they are more confortable in the water then the air.

And I am a Jack Ass sometimes too.

Raven, Ferruginous Hawk, or Northern Hawk Owl.

I am genuinely curious as to what [a jackass] has to do with being a penguin.

Haven't you ever played Pin the Tuxedo on the Emperor Penguin? Yeeesh.

I'm a chicken(Gallus gallus domesticus). I wouldn't want to be, but I was born as one and there's nothing I can do about it. =(

LOL

This is the more common name for the African Penguin. It is more commonly known as the "Jackass Penguin"

It was a sly attempt at humor.

I am a screech owl. I raised one, and she and I seemed to have the same personality. Owls are INTPs, go figure.

I was told once that I would def. be an owl. I wouldn't mind, really, but I guess it would depend what kind of owl. Maybe an elf owl, because those are cute, and now I want one as a pet.

But really, now. I think I would actually be a Potoo. Fucking unfortunate, but hey- at least some people can laugh about it.

Any species of vulture, though if forced to choose my region is that of the turkey vulture (Cathartes aura).

As valid a raptor as any eagle or owl, but an opportunist. Warming in the rookery, riding thermals with a wobbling wingspan too large for an unfilled belly, living on death unpretentiously whilst showering intruders in vomited putrefied flesh, and carrying sky-buried souls into the afterlife. Tis the true bird of God.

You realize how badass their camouflaging ability is, right?



Be a proud potoo! :D
