View Full Version : If you could be any kind of bird, what would you choose?

So, in the spirit of good parenting, my wife decided to get a bird feeder. The kids were really enjoying it until later this afternoon, when apparently a Cooper's Hawk decided to ambush the other cute, fluffy birds at the feeder and eat a few. While watching the hawk consume his smaller breathren, I wondered the above question for myself.

I'd like to be a male Western Tanager.

You?

That would be so cool. I always wanted to see a bird of prey grab another bird out of the sky.

I'd like to be one of those falcons that dive-bombs their prey. That would be a pretty exciting lifestyle.

The Cooper's Hawk ambushed them at the feeder, not in the sky.

I really wouldn't want to be any kind of bird. The sex can't be that great. I'd choose to be a pig. They really get after it.

Am I disqualified now?

In this instance I'd have to go with A Cooper's Hawk.

A Peregrine Falcon? World's fastest bird, if my geekness recalls. 200+ mph in a dive?

I don't think that fits you. Perhaps something more sedentary? One of those birds that lives underground, perhaps?

i actually got to witness an eagle chase down a duck last winter. i'd guess the chase may have lasted 3-5 minutes. never saw a duck flap his wings so fast before. but, he just wasn't fast enough.

Head outside on a summer day, and look up. If you see a bird that's so high up in the clouds that you can't even tell what it is, one that is soaring on the air currents and is so high above all the shit we put up with down here on a day to day basis that he isn't even aware of its existence, that's the bird I want to be.

The Ferruginous Hawk, Mr. Donger.

Ferruginous Hawks ambush prairie-dogs. And, since I was but a child, I have dreamed of ambushing a prairie-dog.

How would you like to have only pretty birds use your feeder. When I was young, one of my buddies dad wired the perches of the feeder to a model train transformer and put a push button switch in the circuit. When sparrows or other undesirable birds tried to use it, he would shock them off it. It was great. Only colorful birds came to the feeder. Till us little bastards showed up while the old man was at work. We would shock all of the birds and laugh our ass off.

I guess my little joke that "ambushing prairie dogs" could be a euphamism for something else didn't come through on that.
No worries, they can't all be winners. I'll just pretend that one was all for me and move on.

I hear there are places with more prairie dogs than a bird could eat in a lifetime. Out in the desert or something.

Just imagine for a moment. You are a majestic and powerful Ferruginous hawk. Confident and assured. Sharp eyed and intelligent, you are the dominant animal in all you survey. You wait patiently on the outskirts of prairie-dog town.

There's no rush.

Then, as the morning sun gracefully paints the awakening desert with a soft, orange glow, a gentle prairie-dog innocently exits his burrow seeking his breakfast and you ambush the little f*cker.

I mean, what could be better than that?

Golden Eagle. I want to survive off of red meat, not fish, seeds, or stuff that's been dead a week. Also, I want to be big enough to kill real food and not have to live off mice, snakes and such.
