Since I suggested it I'll start it, mine are waxwings, one of the most colourful birds we get in the UK, we only see them in winter when most other birds have there drabbest plumage so one of these and normally they travel in large numbers will brighten my day.
Oh and they're very happy to be photographed

I'd say mine is by far the Western Tanager. Unfortunately I've never got a great shot of them. They remind me of a Tequila Sunrise.

Black Skimmers. I love the abstract quality they have, and the challenge of getting them in focus! ;-)

Beautiful tern image! They have lovely clean, angular lines and the background here is terrific.

Yes I have to agree Terns are a most charismatic bird

One of my favourite birds to photograph is the heron, as long as they are not just standing there doing nothing !

Though, there are so many beauties, the hummingbird is my favorite for watching and trying to capture!

I really enjoy the challenge of taking in flight shots. The buzzard being one of the more challenging to get a good shot of in flight.

Kingfisher
My Favourite bird is the Kingfisher, I have taken pictures in 7 locations.If I go a couple of days without seeing them I get withdrawal problems.

My favourite bird is the shoveler. I like these unusual ducks because a lot of people probably look at them and think they are just mallards but they are (in my opinion) one of our most charismatic ducks.
I am yet to get a great photo of them ... this is my best.

My favourite bird is the 'lowly' wren. Lively, fiercely territorial a loud beautiful and instantly recognisable song. It's a stunning little bird and under rated by my reckoning.

This shot, I think, captures the spirit of the bird.

I Think the British Barn Owl (tyto alba) is probably the most enigmatic Bird of Prey and I spend a lot of time photographing them throughout the year in the Uk.

A wonderful bird to photograph in the wild especially in flight.

I also love to photograph BOP generally, and our beautiful British Robin !!

My favourite bird is the much maligned Starling.

They react to light in such a varied manner, and they are so entertaining.

If they lived in Borneo and were seldom sighted we would wax lyrically about them.

do you want to play?

I love bald eagles, but I do not have photos of this beloved fellow, in its place I decided to bring this cute fellow, unfortunately, I do not know its name, I found him during my walks at the top of a tree, making this pose to the cam and it seems to be laughing! If someone knows the name, please tell me. Thank you.
Favourite bird? Got to be a tossup between Grey Wag and Dipper! Probably grey wag, though. Got this individual whilst on holiday in paris, baffling the tourists by pointing my camera away from notre dame and towards this little fella who was nesting with 4 healthy looking chicks in the side of a bridge!

my favourite bird is the whitethroat you can get very close to them and they have nice coloured plumage as well

featherandfur - I never heard of a British Barn Owl, a Common Barn Owl yes, and what´s a British Robin? Would that be the European Robin? Not trying to be political or anything...

As for my favourite, gee whizz, I dunno, tell you what´s a frontrunner though is the Great Shearwater. For shear (sic, pardon the pun) flying ability in rough seas, the length of it´s migration and sleek wings, it comes high up there.
