I was in the mood for a meme, preferably of the easy-to-do variety, and then saw _luaineach's entry in which she revealed that her "power bird" is a vulture. That made me smile, so I figured I'd better follow in her webbed footsteps. And I learned that my own avian Doppelgänger is. . .
Your Power Bird is a Cardinal

You believe that each day is precious, and you spend your times as best as you can.
You see the wonder in small things, and you are often content with what you have.
You life an interesting, colorful life - and you bring color to those around you.
Confident and expressive, you believe you know how to live a good life. You're living it!
I've always loved cardinals, particularly since they provide one of the rare spots of bright color in an East Coast winter. They're bound to one place, which appeals to my change-resisting Taurean sensibility. Why migrate when you can endure?

Also, my favorite football team as a child was the Jim Hart, Mel Gray, and Terry Metcalf-led St. Louis Cardinals, an exciting team not to be mistaken for their unfortunate descendants up in the Phoenix metropolitan area. They should have know better than to keep the same name after "migrating" to browner pastures.

The only problem with my power bird is that it might be mistaken for the non-avian form of Cardinal, the sort whose ridiculous mascot is a puny evergreen. I'll just have to remind everyone that the announcement of my power bird's identity was preceded by the indefinite article.
