Most Beautiful Birds Meme

A few days ago I posted a link about some ornithologists that created a list of the most beautiful birds in North America. Nuthatch commented that this had the makings of a meme, and I think that is a great idea. So now that migration is underway and most birds are appearing in their finest spring breeding plumage, what do you consider the most beautiful birds?

Rules: Post a list of the 10 birds you consider most beautiful on your blog; you may limit the list to the ABA area (continental United States and Canada) or use a geographic area of your choice. Mark birds you have seen with an asterisk. Tag 3 bloggers to keep it going.

My list:

  1. Prothonotary Warbler*
  2. Blackburnian Warbler*
  3. American Avocet*
  4. Wood Duck*
  5. Vermillion Flycatcher
  6. Tundra Swan*
  7. Scissor-tailed Flycatcher
  8. Eastern Bluebird*
  9. Bobolink
  10. Great Egret*
I feel like I could do a list with just warblers on it, but there are many other winged creatures to consider.
