Ten on Tuesday - Aviary Edition

Perhaps Ben was right?
This week, Carole has asked us to go on about our top ten favorite birds.  This one is difficult for me because I am ignorant on the subject of birds.  There are a few of the typical types that remind me of people, such as cardinals will always remind me of my Nana, but other than that, I am at a loss.  I don't know names and I'm not a big bird watcher.  I may photograph them but I have no clue who they are or anything else... and really, I have no desire to know.  So here is my take on today's aviary edition of the Ten on Tuesday...
  1. Free Bird - what can I say.  You can take the girl out of Alabama but you can't take the Bama out of the girl.
  2. Big Bird - Who doesn't love a super huge 8 ft. tall yellow feathered toddler?
  3. Blackbird - again, what can I say.
  4. Birdman of Alcatraz - if you haven't seen it, remedy it... it's awesome.
  5. "Flipping the Bird" - now generally, I wouldn't list this but you have to see my mama do it.. it's funny.  She makes a little face to go with it and she barely lifts her finger... truly classic.
  6. Turkey - okay, so I was able to think of an actual bird.  I love turkeys - and I love the fact that they were almost our national bird.. we should have something so delicious as a state symbol.
  7. Cuckoo - but not in the traditional sense... more like the clock really.  I love a good cuckoo clock.
  8. The Partridge Family birds - I used to love to watch those multi-colored beauties wander around the screen in all the technicolor glory.
  9. Hedwig - because who wouldn't want a beautiful snow white owl.
  10. Surfin' Bird - this song changed the face of music back in 1963, and I apologize in advance because I know it's going to get stuck in your head too.  I've been humming it the whole time I wrote this list!
So there is my version of the Top Ten Birds... probably not what Carole expected at all but then again, this is me we are talking about so who is really surprised.


  1. LOL, love it - great list! Happy TOT!

  2. LOVE your list! You brought a smile to my day. So clever!

  3. Oh how fun! Love your list. So funny. Thanks to you, I will have Free Bird stuck in my head for 2 days. Where's my lighter....? Awesome.
