You've captured the poofy fledgling perfectly! It was nice to see you on a few of my posts today. I always like it when you stumble upon my ravens :) Thanks for the visit!

Is that why we are told to put our drier lint out for the birds? I always thought it was for the nests, but perhaps that's how they make babies. Little fiber artists.

Did you have a particular species of baby in mind? 'Cause it looks like a fledgling wood thrush I accidentally caught once (don't ask).

Thank you all for your comments. I love them all. More, more!

I'm sorry I'm not always here with a response, but truly I love to hear from my friends and visitors.

I started this little fella last year, and put him away. But when I saw IF's prompt, 'poof' I thought of this little guy.

Thank you for visiting my blog, and for all your kind remarks.

love,
cat

awwwww! adorable!

i spent part of one summer banding piping plovers. the chicks were described to me as cotton balls on toothpicks which, as it turns out, is pretty darn close.
