No nightingale ?

Oh well I'll go for the canary then. Why? he's a "musician" bird.

Can you keep a nightingale as a pet? I was trying to stick with domesticated birds, at least those that are most popular.

Ah, I see... in that case, yes, nightingale's are illegal, I guess.


But seriously, other than Polly, who would identify themselves with (pet) birds?
I can't think of any temperament traits birds have that could possibly resemble to humans.

Haha well it started as a thread about 'power/spirit animals' and I just felt that birds would be funny.

Exactly. Not that I'm bad tempered here, but that's just local behavior.

I've gone on rampage before, destroyed a whole corridor because of my temper (it was triggered of cource).
Two meters tall of rage and fury

The physical body was not the subject of the thread, only the character.
But, considering my size, using my mouth would be extremely unconvenient during such a rage.
I would call that an anti-climax really

Only have experience with Lovebirds. We had one and it was fantastic.
It nibbled on everything, every paper or poster in our house had nibbled edges.

But it was also very fun. It loved to ride humans walking about - when it wanted to go upstairs or down it jumped on your head and hitched a ride.
We had a cage for it, but it could escape it so we only bothered putting it in it at night or when the window was open.

I don't even know how I became a parrot here. I'm going to take a wild guess and say it was JJ somehow

As for the bird... Could indeed be a parrot, peculiar garnments, but not overflashy like the cockatoo.

And that last bird is gorgeous

Polaris --> short name "Polly" --> Polly is a common parrot name --> Polaris = Parrot.
