    There is such a wide variety of birds there is one that most exemplifies each of our personality types. So if you could put your essence or being into one of our fine feathered friends, which lucky foul would it be, and why?

    a pelican - cuz, its beak can hold more than its belly can!  and that is exactly how I am, lots of talk, always taking on more than I can handle, but a strong flyer and I make people smile. smile

    Am currently a lemming, but intend to do something about that. All it will take is one really good idea and I am due.

    I'd probably be one of those annoying seaguls that wait until toursists are entertained watching the ocean waves and fly by quickly snatching their sandwich! wink

    ooooh...I can't just pick one.  I would be EITHER a Cassowary because they're dangerous or a Snowy owl because they are stunning and peculiar at the same time.

      Just like you -- colorful and fun loving!  smile


      Me, I would be an eagle.  I'd love to be able to soar to the highest tops and still be able to focus on 5 different points at the same time.

      intelligent responses, hubpages, forums, HERE !  big_smile

      I thought this was a tongue in cheek question when you made what I guess was a typo with "what kind of foul would you be"

        ReggieD06posted 8 years agoin reply to this

        You are absolutely right my friend. My brain allowed my fingers to type "foul" while the word "fowl" remained caged within my cerebral cortex. This is why I(eye) can't trust myself to(two) post my hubs without reading them out loud first.
