Sunday bird blogging




You can see dinosaur ancestry in the scaly, clawed feet of birds -- close up they're quite terrifying.


But when I see a fledgling like this robin, whose neck feathers haven't all come in yet, I marvel yet again at what skinny necks they have, and the absurdity of the plump bodies supported on those spindly little legs.

Life is so fragile, and yet we persist.
