I'll go along with Melissa's list since I think the eclectus has the most beautiful feathers of any bird and Melissa has that higher up on her list. I also agree with most of her other birds.

OK, let's change the rules. Pick the prettiest bird in the picture above, Laura Doering, Melissa Kauffman or Jessica Pineda. Forget the others!
