Bow down, Finches.
By Lauren I.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and bet it’s a game of “Peekaboo.”
This little guy knows how to bust a move.
We’ve seen all kinds of specialized cafes in The Big J. Kittehs, of course. Owls, and even Penguins, too. Now Robb S. brings a “Small Bird Cafe” to our attention. It’s called the Kotori Cafe, on Omotesandō Street.
(In the area? It’s right here.)
According to Where In Tokyo.com, “This unusual cafe is populated by parrots, parakeets, sparrows and cockatoos for your bird-watching enjoyment. After you’ve finished your coffee or tea you can spend five minutes in the interactive zone at the back of the cafe. There, a staff member will apply disinfectant to your hands, and show you (in Japanese) how to handle and gently play with the resident birds without getting bitten.”

interesting quirky set of diagrams- they give you a clearer picture of exactly what is where on various adorabuhl creatures. Well, most of ’em are adorbs. Mebbe not the last two.
OK, definitely not the last two.
I do believe that Sunny is giving us just a LITTLE bit of attitude. Maybe it’s because there’s a toaster nearby.
“Hi Cute Overload team, this is my cockatiel Sunny, looking like a little weirdo while napping with her foot tucked in. She is terrified of toasters and loves lentils. A complex creature.
Even if you don’t post hope you enjoy the pics! Thanks for your fantastic website!” -Jill S.

Quoting the BP article, Villeneuve says “My camera is almost a dream catcher.”
Can’t argue with that!
Seriously, you will love this video taken in Pasadena, CA. Bebeh Finches being born and stuff, and peeping their puffy leetle heads off. Sit back, and glow -n- flow!
Cuteporter Mary P. sent us this Urgent QTE-Flash email. Let’s hear it, Mary:
“I need your help. So far, I’ve only been able to knit 3 and a half of the 1200 nests Wildcare needs for this year’s crop of orphaned baby birdies. With your help, I bet the Cute Overload community can make the needed knitted nests in no time! Wildcare is located in San Rafael, CA. (North of SF.) This link has info on how to help.”
If not, just cozy up in your nest! (And later on, maybe order some takeout.)
“I had a Mourning Dove build her nest in the middle of the hanging basket on my third floor deck one year. I had to let the plant die, couldn’t really water it. :) -Karen M.”
