Yep, as you say. It's just a personal preference.
I like Hawaii and south Florida as well. Never been to St. Thomas.

Here is the grey jay:

Perhaps I am mistaken about the Loon but that bird is featured on many Canadian coins. I know for a fact that the Alberta Rose is the state flower of Alberta. Cherokee Rose is the state flower of Georgia.

Actually, Alberta's flower is the wild rose. I lived there 57 years and have never heard it called the Alberta rose.

Your bird looks like a Chickadee which is a small song bird and woodpecker. Excellent!
