Note to the owner of the Bird Files: What is the purpose of the "Positive/Neutral/Negative" rating per bird? Does a more colorful bird gain a more positive rating?!
I would suggest a "rating" of "easy to attract/difficult to attract".

For years I have found this bird to be a charming addition to our feeder. It brings its baby, which is as big as the parents it seems, and feeds it from the feeder. After a time the parents fly away and the baby stays. Silly birds, talk all the time, walk funny, of great interest to watchers, fun, and very common in Michigan in wooded areas.
