My favorite inside bird is a macaw I used to have one, I like them because they talk, and do tricks, you can take them with you where ever you go. They are very funny to watch. And the outside bird I love the most is the hummingbird, it is the smallest of all the birds.They consume 50% of their weight each day in sugar, they lap up the nectar with their tounges.they Fly so much that their feet are poorly developed, they can barly walk.They live 5-6 years.They can fly forward,backward,sidways and upside down.,They flap their wings 60-200 times a second. Their wings buzz.

Oh my a bird discussion! I am in absolute love with birds and am completely mad with them. Unfortunately I don't stumble on upon too much discussions about birds. I have 8 quails, 2 budgies and a lorikeet who loves making telephone noise and tries to imitate us and I could go all day about them.
