red breasted-nuthatch is my personal favorite because its the first bird i learned the name of. but i do like hawks and finches in terms of types
--> @K_Michael
I like Boobies

Ravens also look really cool.
Cockatiel, no it's not a gay cock joke.

It's a fantastic bird in both appearance and behaviour. One of the only birds to truly have a personality of its own and interact with humans in a way that is neither mimickery nor non-linguistic.

My family actually used to own a pair of cockatiels.
The Owowah bird, so-called because it lays square eggs.
--> @keithprosser

cause you can eat-um and make fishing flys etc with the feathers.

Turkey Vulture. No explanation needed.

Fair enough.
A few years ago, I was driving by in a car when I saw a turkey vulture on the side of the ride. As the car approached, it took off right then and there, crossing the road in front of me in one of the most beautiful displays that I've ever seen. As I looked on, one word came to my lips:

Snowy Owls. But birds are, in general, amazing creatures. I should give some honorable mentions to:

  • Canada Geese
  • Kiwis
  • Emus
  • Kakapos
  • Osprey
  • Doves
  • Shoebill Storks
  • Greater Sage Grouses
  • Barn Owls
  • Red-bellied Woodpeckers
  • Cardinals
  • Ducks
  • Cockatoos 
  • Hummingbirds
  • Cranes
  • Parakeets
