Fluffy Contest

I just love it when they get their feathers ruffled!

"Dumb dove! Look at me!"



Well, I'm not playing your silly games - I'm eating!

Yesterday, I watched a dove sunning itself all fluffed out like yours. The wrens and the catbirds also fluff up to sing.

Oh, I just love the fluffy contest - the fluffier the better - always makes them look so young and innocent ;-) But I really think your red-belly is smart to EAT instead of joining the contest - great pictures, Helen!

Stacey Huston said...

Both beautiful and fluffy, but I would say that the blue bird wins..lol
