Bird or Tribble?

National Geographic's Bird field guide (by Rulon E. Simmons) states that a bird in the winter is easier to sneak up on and take pictures of because they are fluffed up and don't take to flight right away. I can state for the record that this is true. The bird in this picture doesn't even look like it's got a head. If you look closely though you can see it (you may have to enlarge the picture by clicking on it to get a better view).

This picture was taken last saturday at Nathan Phillips Square at the peace flame parkette. I did a lot of following up on different jobs today so no pictures. However one day I'll have to shoot the job bank at Pape and Danforth as it's pretty dismal.

Aw man that is cute! Its got its little head tucked awaym so it doesnt lose heat through the holes in its head. I often feel so sorry for those tiny birds in the snow, desperately trying to keep their blood from freezing in winter with no food around. I cant imagine how they keep warm enough. Its nice to leave lots of fatty, nutty treats out for them to snack on.
