Well, there must be something to your choice. The only wildlife that I get to see during my workday are the pair of Peregrine Falcons that perch and eat their kill outside my window 37 stories above the Hudson River.

I would consider myself one luck person to be able so work and observe the Peregrines Ed..

My submission is House Sparrow:
not a very colorful bird but quite common

The bird that seems to be everywhere is the ubiquitous, and very noisy “Hadeda” – or are they only a Southern African phenomena ?

My gut reaction to this poll would be the House sparrow which acts very unpleasant in these parts. I am wondering if it’sdistribution has been helped along but we humans. Sure wish it was the Barn Owl as I have yet to see one in new England or my travels.

Adam,
I really meant to get back to you right away after this post. The day after you posted I went out with the Director of the Birds of Prey Project for the U. of California. Glenn was flying three of his Peregrine falcons and I was lucky enough to be invited. When asking him about the Peregrine being the most ubiquitous of birds, he said it is the most wide-spread, but not enough of a population to be the most ubiquitous.
House sparrow would be my vote.
I am bringing Birders with us in May to Pioneer Camp. Hope to benefit from your interest in birds, if not in the field, perhaps at the BOMA.
