Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?  My back yard is full of them!  They're tiny, with long sort of tails.  So cute!  P.S.  I'm in the Pacific Northwest, if that helps.

It looks a little like a junko.  My grandmother used to call them "Nun birds".  Not 100% sure though.

Aw, the junkos are so cute!  But they are way more colorful than my little birds, which are mostly gray and/or brown with a little white.

Here's the reason I had to brush my teeth in the kitchen this morning:



Meep also likes to sleep on the drain of the tub...very odd.
Oh, da CUTE!!  Her face markings are a-door-a-bull.

Sorry, Shoo, I just saw this picture and maybe you already know what kind of birds these are, but I was wondering if they might be bushtits. Oh, I hope that makes it through the filter.  >:D

Here's a picture:

Yes, I think they are Bushtits.  They are so tiny!  Almost as tiny as hummingbirds.  A friend of mine named them "Tiny Longtail Cutebirds."  So that's what I call them!

Young Pirate (about 9 or 10, I think?) as a flower girl in a second cousin's wedding



One of my favorite pictures of myself and Piratebabe, taken about a month ago at the beach near Seaside Heights, NJ.

There are 3 does that like to hang out in the woods around my Daddys house. One day I was sitting in the spare bedroom on the computer, when I heard leaves rustling. The pics arent the best, because I grabbed my phone, since it was the closest thing.

Comparison pictures of myself as a baby with piratebabe, as per the "drives you up the wall" thread.

Me as a baby, not sure just what age, but less than 4 months is my guess:


Old enough to stand up:


Piratebabe recently (4 months)
