Day 109 - Are You My Mother?


Did anyone read that story Are You My Mother? when you were a kid? It was one of my faves. That was my first thought when I saw this little guy all by himself. My baby girl and I were out walking around the complex and since I hadn't taken a picture yet today I brought my camera with me. We found this baby House Finch (aka a "fledgling" according to the bird nerd hubs) sitting ever so still in the corner of the building. He didn't budge as I sat there and snapped away. It was so cute seeing my little girl squat down to check him out. I just love his old man eyebrows! According to the hubs it's actually leftover downy fluff but it sure looks like old man eyebrows to me. :)

Hee Hee!!! I LOVE this! I also loved the book Are you my Mother? I would read it over and over again. I could not read it to my children!

We in Australia used to have a Prime Minister with eyebrows like that, his name was Bob Hawke! This little guy is much cuter.

such a cute bird, I thought immediately of eyebrows myself. If it's downy it's realyy left in the perfect positions!

My absolute FAVORITE book when I was little! I hope this little bird doesn't have to face that trauma of having to search for his mother!

Lovely shot......

They do look like old man eyebrows. It's always good to have your camera with you; you never know what you will see.

We LOVE that book in our house and you are so right that this little guy looks like he stepped right out of the pages of that book. His eyebrows and head tilt are adorable.
