Monk Parakeet (not sure I really want one of these, but it would be nice to see one)****
Caspian Gull (if I have to!)*****

You don't have to parcel them up in one go, I don't mind two or three a day, you know like the twelve days of Christmas kind of thing, but with birds. I am not sure I could cope with any number of maids-a-milking anymore

Had to go manual...
then forgot I was in manual. Might have nailed it otherwise...
