Cute Overload :D
I know we’re twins, but stop repeating everything I say!
Sparrow Darryl and his other brother Sparrow Darryl, brought to us by Ginette C.
My brother used to do something similar to me.
Looks like the avian version of a frequently occurring scene between my two sons: “You shut up!” “No, *you* shut up!”
I think the shushed one is a girl. Different markings and all. Just saying 🙂
And yeah, totally something my older brother would do to me. Along with the classic “why are you hitting yourself?”
Actually this is a male House Sparrow shuting up a female House Sparrow. DOMESTIC ABUSE!
Interesting capture though.
My older sister did this exact same thing to me when we were really little kids. Except that she told me to stick my tongue out (which I stupidly did) and then she picked up her raggedy Andy doll, held his hands with hers and “made him” squish the crap out of my tongue. Then when I cried and mom asked us what happened, she innocently said, “Andy did it.” Clever one, that big sis of mine. 🙂 I still laugh when I think about that!
My brother did that, too! Along with the rope-burn arm thing.
Yeah, looks like one is female and one is not, but they could still be twins. They’re both very pretty, anyway!
… Yeller? Faithful? King Cole?
…Man and the Sea? Dan Tucker?
I sometimes want to do that to the mirror, too! ***shoosh***
That makes sense. Male birds are more flamboyant. Peahens are drab brown, peacocks are well…
Anyway I see we have a few flying things being posted on CO recently. Can we add some bats to that please?
haha big sisters are the worst! I was lucky enough to have a big brother who is 7 years my senior….I think I tortured him though!
Hey, whatever works!
Ironsides? School? Navy?
Hearing Kevin James… “shut-y.”
Shut yo’ mouth! What? I’m talking about Shaft!
Bait & switch?
Is new again?
…something new, something borrowed and something blue?
Though it’s true, I think we have seen this before.
The Brothers Daryl – what a blast from the past! lol
Everybody was Kung-fu fighting
those birds were fast as lightning
a little bit exciting
they were Kung-fu fi-i-i-ting!
I know! I was, like, a Newhart fan! Awesome. (But where’s Larry?)
Along with the ever popular “I’m not touching you.”
Hush little baby, don’t say a word…
If any one can show just cause why they may not be lawfully joined together, let them peep now or forever hold their beak.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m thinking it’s mother with perpetually hungry child.
House Sparrows! Used to be known as “English Sparrows” years ago here in the U.S. Left is a male, right is a female. There are all over here, with nests in the eaves of the houses of both sides of me. I love to hear them sing, but it looks like this little guy has had enough!
The one on the left is a male, the right is female.
Or a little one in the “why” stage.
Shutuppa ya face!
Mom, he’s BREATHING MY AIR!!!!!
Correct. The one being shushed is most certainly female and the other is male.
Maybe you are remembering this classic?
Guess it’s better than the canine method of engulfing the muzzle in one’s own.
Taking the picture.
I would say that the male bird wants the baby to shut up!!!
