While others have to work at it.

This little bird is perfectly healthy— it’s just moulting, changing its feathers. If you look at the corners of his beak you’ll see a little yellow curve—that yellow says he’s still a baby. He’s changing from baby fluff into adult feathering. I sure love birds.

    What an AMAZING capture! The bird has almost a human-like expression… Kudos!

  • Thanks! Yes, I’m sure animals have the same emotions and project them the best they can. We’re made out of the same stuff: carbon and water. So why shouldn’t they have emotions?
