Bad hair day birds.
Lens: Any Camera: Any Photo Location: Anywhere. 
Posted By: normhead, 09-18-2016, 08:33 AM

IN response to this thread...
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/12-post-your-photos/329919-nature-equivil...-hair-day.html

I thought I'd post my own...'birds having bad hair day" images...although I guess it should be birds having "bad feather" day images...











I'm noticing lots of finch type bad hair days, and some Blue Jay bad hair days, but no Chickadee or Gray Jay, or Sparrow bad hair days. I think the likely hood of bad hair days should be part of the naming protocol for birds. But first I need to know which birds are likely to have bad hair days.

I hope some of the rest of you will be contributing evidence.

One of the worst cases I've seen .....Yellow Crowned Night Heron chick.


It didn't get much better when he got a little older....


As he matured and got his first shave and trim at the barber shop, he finally overcame his disability!

Yep! Most of my bird shots are of well groomed birdies too, but every so often one is pretty badly tailored....

"Also avoid the cheap brand of hair gel!"

I'm certainly glad you are feeling better....those damn squirrels chanting prayers for old grouchy Norm to recover.......every night at bedtime, has been getting me down! .....and Mrs Rupert keeps asking..."Who's Norm and what's going on?"

I've been working hard on it, Otis required me to listen to an hour long speech about "Why old Norm is the greatest!" and said if I didn't get on your good side I'd have to re-listen every day until I did.

I'm stubborn, but I'm not dumb.....I never argue with Otis!

Best Regards!

One more that got the "Squirrel daily special cut".

The day I took those pictures I was feeling really lazy and birds were still in migration so there were still many birds in the trees. I just put the DA 55-300 PLM on the camera and walked around instead of sitting in the blind with longer lens. The birds were the ones that didn't mind me being 8 feet away. The reason this for this guy's bad hair is he's telling I'm too close.

But usually I use the Tamron AF ED 300 2.8 LD [IF] with the F 1.7x AF adapter.

Despite the hair thing, this guy was very patient with me. Some of them have realized that right after I come to the feeders the selection is the best it's going to be all day. And actually sit close so they can be first in when I leave. This guy was my buddy no doubt, one of the first in liners. But he definitely got annoyed because I was hanging around with that stupid completely inedible thing in front of my face.
