    Fearow by far; It was always on my team in Gen. 1 (except for Yellow playthroughs) and I feel guilty now that I replaced it with a Clefable in FireRed. I should train one up in White or Black, just for nostalgia purposes...

    Hoothoot and Noctowl. Great designs, they learn Psychic-type moves and have nice defenses for these kind of early birds. Hypnosis is also useful when you catch Pokemon as well. And not to mention Noctowl is available pretty early on in HG/SS if you are lucky with Headbutt and find an underleveled one. XD

    I was always fond of Pidgey and its family, and since I did grow up with these Pokemon it is perhaps one of my more favourite flying types. Hoothoot/Noctowl would come as a close second as I did always like their design).

    The Pidgey line. Not particularly strong, but I have good memories training one. And Hoothoot/Noctowl too, for the same memories. And I like owls. :p

    Swellow. The blue/red combo is epic.

    Starly's family, hands down.
    Both design wise and battle wise.

    The Starly line for me, as yes, it is the only one I have trained out of them all, but even in design, it looks the best, in my opinion. A much stronger build to it than the others, and an awesome second and third evolution design in particular.
    Also, I like its movepool, and cry.

    I only recently decided that I liked the Fearow line, and I can't claim to have tried it out (when I decided I wanted an alternate early game flyer I picket the Zubat line) but its something I'd like to try. It certainly looks suitably impressive and intimidating.

    Hoothoot/Noctowl due to being the first Early Bird Pokémon I caught when I first played Gold which is when I also first got into the whole Pokémon game thing.

    Starly, it's strong and just keeps on getting better.

    My favorite is definitely taillow, though pidove is a close second. Swellow is such a striking design, and it works well in battle, which just makes it really useful on a team. I always try to catch one when I play gen III.

    I'm not a big fan of any of them, but Unfezant is kinda cool.

    Staraptor is the most useful, but I like Swellow a lot more for its design.

    The Pidgey line. It's easily my favorite design-wise.

    I like Swellow's line the most because I liked Ash's. Starly is a close second since it's the best in battle.

    Hoothoot line wins this by default for being the only one that isn't generic and interchangeable with the others.

    Staraptor and, by extension, the whole Starly line. Not only is the design epic, it's also pretty strong, and actually usable.
