Hey! Get Your OWN Feeder!

[This red stuff is made ‘specially for US, dig? Can’t you find some BIRD SEED somewhere??]


output_ps7ZBEIt’s 5pm PT on Friday, time for another TGIF, the best part of the week! “C.O., meet Mr. H. Just look at those toes!” Long time listener, first time caller!” –Emily T.

“♬ Splish Splash We Wuz Takin’ A Bath…♫”

Yes, yes, we did that header a year ago, but it’s just SOOOO OBVY. Anyway. Take a look at Mr. Hummer Man diving in for a bath. Over and over and over!

They love the red juice

Snorgle A Hummingbird?

pot belleh 1“I’m submitting this photo I took of a Hummingbird exhibiting Rule #38,” comments Cuteporter -Lise C. [*Note: “If you have a curved, plump belleh, it’s cute.” -Ed.] “Alas, I wasn’t allowed close enough to Snorgle it. H-birds have pretty good BEF*, too! We love C.O.!”

[*BEF = Beady Eye Factor. And trying to Snorgle a Supersonic Hummingbird, while truly admirable, seems hopeless. If you do, photos please. -Ed.]

More Hummingbirds, If You Please!

From The C.O. Mailbag:

“Dear C.O., I love Cute Overload, but I have noticed that you don’t post enough hummingbirds. Hummingbirds conform to many Rules Of Cuteness, namely: #14: If an everyday, small item makes you look small, it’s cute. But they also have peeping tongues and disapproving looks! And they nest in the funniest places. I am sending you some photos from this slideshow at the Cornell Labs of Ornithology. These aren’t mine, so I can’t give permission, but here is a link to the slideshow.” -Anna S.
