Bad Hair Day Bird
I can sympathize with this bird which I think might be a goldfinch, probably a female, with dull fall plumage. What stands out as I look at this little bird, though, is that even birds have bad hair days.
At first I thought the bird was a tufted something, but after watching its companions for a while, it was obvious that the tuft was bad hair. The bird didn't seem to mind. It just kept diving for spiders around the windows of our house.
I'm encouraged that I can actually discern that individual birds have differences. Even bad hair that marks one bird from another.
