January 25, 2023

I am a Savannah Sparrow
I've got a short tail and I've got pink beak
My head is comparatively smaller than my body
But sometimes I raise my crown feathers into a peak.

(Cornell doesn't explain why they raise their crown feathers, but sometimes I wear a high ponytail to make me look taller, so I am guessing that raising the crown feathers is done for the same reason.)
