Baeolophus bicolor

I love these acrobatic, animated birds with their mohawks, big eyes and tiny beaks. They are year-round residents in Louisiana and we're happy to have them. Photos taken January 7, 2014.






Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.

Beth's right, it does look as though he has a wee tear by his eye...nevertheless, your shots are always brilliant, especially of this cutie!

Wonderful captures Gail! Lucky you to see this cutie-pie, he's adorable.

I'm laughing, Gail, remembering our earlier conversation about the abbreviated name for this little bird and wondering if that's why you titled your post as you did. Whatever you call him, he's truly beautiful, as are your photos of him.

The third photo really allows him to show off his feather-cut hairstyle.
I do believe he was modeling for you and enjoyed doing so. So pretty! God is amazing and so is HIS creation.
hugs to ya!!

He's adorable! You caught great photos of him. I love how the patches of blue sky in the background capture the blue in his feathers.

That sweet little face puts me in mind of someone's little tag-along brother with early morning bed head. Too adorable. And wonderful captures as always.

This little guy is so dang cute. I love the things you said you love, too. What a cutie.

I have a friend I have turned on to your blog. She only does Instagram but you can see her on my Instagram tab.

I love these photo that are pink she did for me {the flowers} http://instagram.com/p/jODuWbAHx_/ and then this one she did with pink enhancements http://instagram.com/p/jODuWbAHx_/.

Just wanted to share her with you. She doesn't have a blog just instagram. She is a retired high school english teacher and has time now to work on her photography.

I love you,Gail!!!♥

You do capture birds that show all of their charming character. I just want to grab this littleone off that limb and kiss that sweet face.

DID you get any of the snow that came to the south?
