Thanks for having the courage to vote for the Starling!!!   I agree the individual bird is beautiful.

OK. You've finally forced my hand. I've been avoiding this silly contest up
ntil now but here's my vote: European Starling for BOTH beauty and voice,
ands down. Look at the individual bird to see the beauty of it's coloring
oth breeding and non-breeding. As for voice, it can imitate all the others!

 For beauty, Bohemian Waxwing is definitely up there at the top of the list.

 For sound, it would be hard to choose between Common Loon and Long-tailed
 Duck.  :)  Both sound amazing!!
