mollybee93: When I went on a study abroad in Panama, we ran into several of these guys in the rainforest. It’s called The Great Tinamou. Basically looks like a mourning dove inflated like a balloon. I’ve always loved fat birds and this has been one of the best fat birds I’ve ever seen. So glad there is a whole blog dedicated to them <3
this is so great and I am so glad you have submitted this picture ahhh

Unbelievable! what a milestone, and it’s all thanks to you wonderful followers. this blog will be turning 3 at the end of next month, and it’s hard to believe how much time has passed and how many of you there are now!

Thanks for all the support :)

roarshack asked: Hello! I'm not sure if you'd know how to answer this, but I'm really hoping you can! I live in the city and I saw a fledging sparrow sitting on the sidewalk for hours. There are no trees, no bushes, a block in either direction of where I found it. Traffic is heavy. I've taken it indoors for the night to avoid raccoons/cats. I've given it water and some millet, but the poor thing is too scared to move. What should I do? I can't locate the nest!

I think maybe you should call Animal Control to help you out! Not an expert though, so would welcome any input from followers! Please answer either directly here or send a response directly to

GUYS OUR BABIES FROM THE CHIVE PLANTER LAST YEAR ARE BACK. I mean, my mom evicted them from the planter, but now they’re in the tree by the deck. LOOK AT THAT FLUFFY MOMMIE.

Haha so I was talking to my mom on skype the other day and she said that two robin families and a dove family have decided to nest in in the trees right by our front door, so whenever my mom or dad open the door now, they are greeted by multiple birdie side-eyes, hisses, and hoots, like they own the place, lololol
