Top Ten wild birds

I've been thinking about the different birds I use in my jewelry, from Quentin quail .... to Clair de Loon ...... to Orlando the swan...., and wondering what other birds I should be trying. So I thought I'd come up with a list of what seems to me to be the most popular wild birds. The list is highly unscientific - just my thoughts based on what designs we see, photographs, news....a whole variety of things. Here are the top 10 - in no particular order

So what do you think? Have I missed out something obvious? What is your favorite?

What about my runners up: herons....Should they be on there? And what about Quentin??? What about a type of duck...

From the list I've made a penguin, a woodpecker, a hummingbird, an owl and a swan..... What next?

The Nuthatch is a dapper little bird and the only one I know that can climb up AND down trees.

And who could forget "Nuthatch City Limits" by Tina Turner?

Should that be "Nuthatch Sitta Limits"? (BirdyGeeky joke!) Tina Turnstone???
