Winged ones have fascinated humans with their soaring flight and the beauty of their song from the earliest beginnings of time. Some of us have a bird as our totem or power animal, while others of us simply enjoy watching their antics around the bird-feeder. But no matter what the nature of our connection to birds, the type that we prefer can give us some interesting clues about our own personalities.
