Oh Shelley! When I'm weeding the flower beds, I worry this is what I look like!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Looks like a Carolina Wren to me....
Hugs,

You sure did put yourself in a precarious position to shoot this perspective. I hope you got out in time.

Who would have ever thought to test our bird I.D. skills this way? Why ...Shelley! I am guessing a chickadee, but there is every likelihood I am wrong....so of course I will check in to see the answer and just what the little birdie got up to next.

I too think it's a Carolina Wren butt. So cute!

Jayne said...

Uh, Red-breasted nuthatch? Cute!

Kelly said...

...that's hysterical...at first I thought he was trying to chew off the branch until I realized those were his feet and not his bill! He sort of makes me think of a titmouse or chickadee (but those belly feathers seem too colorful for that). His little tail feathers are ready for an upgrade too!

Kelly said...

...forgot to say that Mildred's comment made me laugh!

Abe said...

Probably a Carolina Wren but maybe a Tufted titmouse like the one I posted on my birds blog. The feather colors are similar but not sure about the belly. LOL

Looks Chickadee like but I don't know.

Tina said...

Shelley, When I see this view..I worry about getting out from under it!! lol!
Brave shot!

Mary said...

I've seen so many bird butts that you would think I would know them all! Betsy is probably right...wren? Maybe someone should start a "Bird Butt of the Week meme". I'm sure we all would have lots of contributions!

I'm not much of a specialist in bird buttology but I will say it's a cute one.

Craig Glenn said...

Hi Shelly,

I think I shall name that butt.... Fred.

Just kidding! Is it a TTMouse?

Lord only knows! I am fairly new to birding, so I have trouble naming what kind of bird a bird is when I get a 5 minute close encounter. ha
Maybe it is Peter's butt???

Richard said...

Red-breasted Nuthatch.

Andrea said...

Black-capped Chickadee! Such a cute fuzzy butt.

bennie and patsy said...

Bird butt, you are so funny.I will be back can't wait to see if it is a Carolina Wren.

wendy said...

My guess is a Chick-a-Dee.

Chris said...

It's a nice butt, but I cannot answer being from Europe, I do not know that much of your bird. It reminds me of one of my post ;-)

The Early Birder said...

Haven't a clue Shelly - "dicky bird?"

Lynne said...

Black-capped Chickadee is my guess.

Olde Tyme Marketplace said...

Too funny!! This is a whole new skill category of birding, post-graduate level or something!

Sandy said...

Daisy said...

Well!! Remind me to never have you be around with a camera in your hand when I'm working at the library and bend over to put a book on a low shelf! HA HA!
