then i found this:
and i completely understood.
i never really knew that little baby birds are actually pretty ugly in
the earlier stages of their life. these little guys (there are 3 of them)
are about a week old and just starting to get fuzzy. and in their
not-so-fuzzy places they are still not that cute. a little creepy in fact.
but i think their mamma thinks they're cute. she goes crazy to protect them!
(dive-bombing my head in fact.)
ahhh. that motherly instinct.
it's actually really sweet.
