The other day, Binga was watching the Bird TV on our patio area and she started freaking out like she saw some sort of rock star! And maybe it was, because my human’s boyfriend said it “looked like it had a mohawk.” Fortunately my human had her camera handy so she could take a photo. But she had to zoom in like crazy — I think the lens was sticking all the way out! Plus she had to shoot through glass that was dirty. But she caught him on pixels!
In all our years of Bird TV watching, we had never seen this one! Usually it’s just sparrows and bluebirds and mourning doves. Oh, and that dumb hawk that one time.
It hung around for quite a while. It seemed to enjoy making Binga go crazy.
Finally it got sick of the paparazzi and flew away. My human is as much of a luddite when it comes to ID-ing birds as she is about pop culture. So can one of you tell us what kind of birdie this is? And which celebrity it looks the most like?
