    What bird can you imagine yourself as and why?

    A UK artist recently got a dozen people to 'sing' birdsong using their human voices whilst he videod them. He then played around with the visuals to show human birds singing in a unique dawn chorus. One person was in a bath being a blackbird, another at a table being a finch and so on. What bird would you want to sing or act like?

      OK. Tap tap tap...all day long...hopefully without the headache at the end of a long day's work!

    Mockingbird all the way. They imitate song's of other birds, patching them together into complex "concerts." There are many in our South Florida neighborhood, and I love to listen.

    I couldn't appear on that video as a mockingbird though - I can't sing like one in real life!
    For that, it would have to be the sweet two-note mating whistle of the chickadee (they are named after their warning call, which does sound a good bit like the word for the bird).

      I love this answer, two birds in one. One mocking the mating call of the other? In the UK we have a bird called the yellowhammer that sings 'A little bit of bread and no cheese' throughout the summer months. Beautiful.

    I'd have to say the bald eagle, simply because I once experienced myself as such in a dream.  In the dream, a friend--who happened to be a black cat in his physical life--and I were both eagles, perched in a high place, keenly aware of a Brown Spotted Invasion progressing from far away across a barren landscape, still at least a mile or more distant but headed our way.
    The two of us (eagles) launched from our high perch, sweeping forward to the attack.
    When I woke up, it didn't take me long to analyze the Brown Spotted Invasion as being my dental problems in action.  I'd had toothaches since childhood and eventually had all my chompers yanked (best thing for my health I've ever done), but at that time, most of the ivories (plus mercury amalgam fillings) were still there.

      Many thanks. Such great images and word choice. Chompers yanked.I was beginning to think the dream was going to be about your bald head issues and not the dental! In Maine a few years back on holiday we got nice and close to these eagles. Dream bird.

    A kookaburra. They really know how to laugh.

      You are so right, they have a tremendous raucous laugh that drives people mad if they're within earshot. Thank you for the visit and comment.

    Pelican. I'd like to have a big "mouth", so I can swallow everyone who irritates me.

      I see. A pelican certainly has a huge mouth, with a flexible lower bit so fish can't escape. Not sure about their 'song'. Probably connected top food. There are a lot of annoying people around - hope you've a good appetite! Thanks for visiting.

    I would have to say the chickadee since I love its sweet song, I love its acrobatics and it is my favorite bird. It is a only hair ahead of the titmouse, which is my second choice.

      Lovely. The chickadee sounds like an exceptional bird. We don't have it here in the UK but I've seen pictures of it and it looks superb.

      The titmouse (or tit over there) is a close relative of the chickadee.

    Flamingo, because it's pink wink Also it has long legs like I do, and a long neck and I curve my head like they do.

      Many thanks for flying in. I love flamingos. The name, the beak, the legs, the pink, the way they stand on one leg, their haughty appearance, the way they take over a shallow lake.....
