10.  But it is only a little parakeet.

9. This TV star scares me.

8.  Most popular angry bird, and sure to be a popular Halloween costume.

7.  Looks like a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher - how could he be so scary?

6. I don't know what has this guy upset, but I would not cross him.

5. Think about going to the dentist without a pain killer, open wide!

4. If you see this guy eying you, better make a trip to the emergency room.

3. I'll never go into the water again!
