Life is Hard
We often forget how hard the birds that live in our own backyards have it. This tough little guy is missing a toe on his left foot (for you Nikon owners - that's the one in the lower right-hand corner of the photo). He is under constant threat from predators, and don't even get me started about the condition of his feathers (he could use some "product').
