Top Five Meme: Desired Life Birds

Inspired by Corey, I thought I would play along for this meme. And I'm going to borrow his idea and keep my list to an ABA one though I could easily think of 5 birds outside the area I would love to see. Here are my current selections:

  1. Cerulean Warbler - this one will be tough for me to find in Florida but maybe I'll be able to track one down.
  2. Atlantic Puffin - a trip to Maine looks in order for this one. I wouldn't argue with that idea.
  3. Red Crossbill and White-winged Crossbill - something about the weird bill has me itching to see these birds.
  4. Snowy Owl, Great Gray Owl, and Northern Hawk Owl - yeah, I'm going to cheat and name all the northern owls that I will probably never see down here.
  5. Hook-billed Kite - this one was a possibility on my recent TX trip but I missed it. Once again the fascination has to do with that weird bill shape.

So what birds are you desiring to see?

The best bet for Cerulean Warbler is probably to hit a migration hotspot in the spring.
