stamped .:. celtic animal symbolism theme RESTAMP

I got a lot of really great votes on this theme, but none of them quite resonated with me. I thought about why this might be so and came to the conclusion that when I submitted my application the first time, I hadn't quite thought my way through the theme properly. So I'd like to submit it again, this time with answers that better represent my perspective, and see what I get. Thanks for voting! (Oh, and the stamps I received the first time were for Goose and Butterfly.)

Theme # 20 : Bird Families

I'm really excited for this theme - it took a bit of work, but I think it turned out neat. We've got three bird feeders right next to our living room window, and I've been having a blast identifying our various feathered visitors.

I tried to pick bird groups that people would be familiar with. Some are subcategories of the others - owls and vultures belong in the raptor group, but I thought that they're different enough. Crow and ravens are under the songbird group, which is itself under the perching birds group. I added the most general of habitats and areas of the world where each group can be found, as well as random words that describe them somewhat to help with the voting.
