This Guy Looks Vaguely Familiar

I can’ him. Maybe if I hang upside down.

From The Birfle: “I found this pic in another pic-gathering website called Clipboard.”


  1. From OUR BIRFLE??? :)


    Thanks to ceejoe, the Great and Powerful Skippymom, Nikki and Brinke for encouragement!!

    woo-HOO my first item of visual posted evah!!!

  3. skippymom says:

    Birf, you’re having quite a year, eh? How much better can things get?!

  4. well, I *still* haven’t gotten a bebbeh goat aka kid yet; but otherwise, many things sure are Spiffy thx. Sk’mom, is your house a household with multiple non-hominid residents? How is/ are Skippy and (potentially) other furry residents there?

  5. skippymom says:

    Skippy, Eddy, Francesco and Chloe are all well, thank you. They’ve been spending a lot of time by the fireplace since the temperature has been in the single digits a lot of nights here in MA.
    I’ll tell them you said hello.
    I’m still working on the baby goat.

  6. Great find, Firdie :)

  7. thx jerzowa !!

    I did like it particularly and FWIW, I like it even BETTAH b/c they took the photo in black & white. Not sure if I understand why, but it seems to me that I pay more attenshons to the item and the setting, etc., in a b/w or sepia photo than I do in some color photos.

  8. I particularly like, in this picture, that we get to see the beautiful markings on the bird’s wings, and back; and still get all the adorableness of his beady little eye, and pointy tiny beak, too. Oh, and the tiny grippy tosies too. :)

  9. Oh yes. The Birfle Of McFirdiness.

  10. :)

  11. *shaking pompoms*

  25. now THAT’s an interesting version of mon nom de plume! I know, it’s ALWAYS the fault of them dang keyboards. ALWAYS. but thanks for the kudos :)

  26. Whoooops! It is in fact the keyboard’s fault. There’s a problem with my “L” key…. so I guess it should have been Birlfe……. never mind….. (slinking away)

  48. “Hmm, whoever that is, he’s quite handsome.”

  51. THANK you Flora!! When I first “found” the pic, I believe I did do a bit of reconaissance (sp?) but was unable to locate origin data except that it was from Flickr….YAY for resoich.
