      I'm personally a Tailow/Swellow fan, Every R/S/E game I made there was one on my team. I think I just like the way they look. Gen 4/5 birds are too much a like I find.. & Hoothoot/Noctowl just didn't seem as Epic as the 1st & 3rd Generation of Birds.

        I like Noctowl and am willing to wait for hoothoot to evolve to get one and I like the pidgey family too

        Definately Taillow/Swellow, they've been my two favourite Pokémon since I first saw them and I always used them on my team in R/S/E, I love their design and are probally still my favourite Pokémon .

        Pidove's family looks nice I'm going to get one in Black.

        But my favourite early region bird is the Starly family 'cos I've got a Staraptor in all my Gen IV teams.

          I've always had love for the Pidgey family.

          Swellow and Noctowl are my favorite birds. Pidgeot would be at a close second, though.

            Starly/Staravia/Staraptor easily win for me because Staraptor gets Close Combat.

              Taillow / Swellow, definitely. I've always used a Swellow in my game.

                Clearly Spearow for me. Why would you name so many and leave the best one out?
                I'd take a Spearow over maybe 95% of all other Pokemon any day.

                The Pidgey family are my absolute favourite, but the Taillow family comes in a very close second. I like the Pidgey family for nostalgic purposes (Pidgeotto's one of my favourite Pokémon for some reason haha), and I've found Swellow so useful in my Gen III teams.

                I think you're missing Spearow/Fearow from the polls, though, they're decent birds as well. :x

                  Pidgey and evolutions. I've used Tailow before, but Pidgeot looks especially cool.

                    Im a big fan of the flying family's so much.

                    Pidgey, Pidgeotto, and Pidgeot - Classic's. They've been in our hearts right next to the first starters. When you first run into Route 1, and run into a Pidgey. I get the feeling of excitement, and run from the battle, to not hurt the pokemon.

                    Hoothoot, Noctowl - Owls = win... I always think they should Dark/Flying pokemon, because I always use Noctowl for my teams in 2nd generation.

                    Tailow/Swellow - I think they just redid Spearow, and gave him a diffrent evolution. There my least-favorite two bird pokemon for the generation.

                    Starly/Staravia/Staraptor - I love these ones alot, but there not my favorite. The fourth generation showed us the beginning of amazing bird moves, which I was like " HECK YEAH!! "

                    Pidove/Tranquill/[whatever the third one is] - I like these untill it gets to the final evolution. I hate that pink thing on the males face. It makes me want to just look around for the female just so I can get a non-pinkfaced one. I still like them.

                    If they have Washibon-Rufflet/Wargle-Braviary, I would vote for it in a heartbeat, but I went with Noctowl. Staraptor was close tho

                      Pidgey family line. I love it when you evolved your Pidgeotto to have a massive rainbow coloured hair bird Pokemon.

                      I'll always have a fondness for the Pidgey line. I think they look the coolest myself. Although Emobird Staraptor comes in close second. I'll always find it interesting that it learns Close Combat, too. And seriously, they have a red-colored bang over their eyes, how is that not cool?

                        Hi, Staraptor fan here. :D; Ever since recognizing how much damage that thing could do, I could really safely say that it's the most versatile and strongest normal/flying bird there is.

                        I have had some really good memories battling with my Staraptor in Diamond and Platinum <3 So the Starly line for me. And they actually make Staravia look good in the Amine.

                            Star family. I'm a Sinnoh head and I love Staraptor's predator look. It's awesome. It's always been on my Sinnoh teams.

                            Generation 1 and Generation 3 have my favorite birds. I favor the Pidgey line more, but I love both of them.
