  1. Awww, my very favorite backyard bird! They have such sparkling personalities!

    Last summer I grew a sunflower on my porch and they went crazy on it.

  2. For some reason I really wish there was a teeny pompom on the tip of his floof.

  3. Brilliant.

  4. PS: That would be a pompadour pompom. :mrgreen:

  13. Dr Seuss couldn’t come up with better hair.

  14. Is this a Tufted Titmouse?

  15. Yes, by following the second link, that’s what the original photographer identifies it as. She’s got some other awesome bird photos there too!

  16. I just love CO so much!

    That’s a awesome looking birdie with a cool head!

    I think that the cutesie Tufted Titmouse is channeling Ritchie Valens. Any second his twitter is going to break into,
    Para bailar La Bamba
    Para bailar La Bamba
    Se necessita una poca de gracia
    Una poca de gracia
    Para mi, para ti, ay arriba, ay arriba
    Ay, arriba arriba
    Por ti sere, por ti sere, por ti sere
    Bamba, bamba
    Bamba, bamba

  19. This lil Guy reminds me of a member in my favorite band … B-)

  20. Flock of Seagulls?

  21. No, One Direction :-$

  22. Why do I just get boring pigeons in my neighborhood? Where are my cool and dapper 60s birdies?

  23. Yo no soy marinero,
    Soy capitan, son capitan :D

  24. Paraaaaaaaaaa subir al cielo se necesita una escalera largaaaaaaa una escalera larga pa ti pa mi ayyy arriba y arriba! woohoo… little bird dance!

    I feel like this bird and I are…bosom buddies

  27. Kudos to both the artist who digitally painted this soulful-eyed cutie, and the photographer who originally took the little guy’s picture. I can’t decide which version I like more.

    Ddear Fluffy:
    There are times when pointing out digital enhancement seems superfluous, and self-congrstulatory for the pointer-outer. To me, let us just enjoy the Qte? And. And whatever else, you may see here, ya gotta admit, this is Qte!

  29. Gosh, I didn’t think I was pointing anything out. It said it in the description. I just clicked on the links and really loved both artists. I in no way meant to detract from the cute. Sorry if I did not express myself well.

  30. All is forgiven, Fluffy. Come on home. :)

  31. *borrows pom poms from Fird, waves them in Emberran’s direction*

  32. Sort of looks like Guiron… :D

  33. once read in a bird book, “about the fiercest description that could be applied to the tufted titmouse is, ‘cute all over’ “

  34. If only he were red then we could name him Groose!
    …I expect no one to get that reference…

  35. “Kooky, Kooky, lend me your comb”
