A Miniature Redbird

Buffy accompanied me out in the backyard, to walk around and see what we could see.


I must say I’ve never seen a red bird such as this one. It’s actually made of leaves, and is perched high in the pine tree in my backyard. I can’t imagine the chances of leaves “making a bird,” especially one with an eye, white eye ring, both beaks and a long tongue. Now I need a name for it. Obviously, it has to be a new species.


  I couldn’t see the details in this picture from a distance, and I didn’t see them until I got the picture in the blog.


 Now I need a name for it … because it must be a new species.

  1. I’m not feeling very creative. How about something like Autumn Redleaf?


  2. You forgot to mention it’s two long greenish yellow legs!


  3. What a wonderful thing to spot, well done you.

    it definitely does resemble a bird. I would choose the same name as your commentor Mike Powell, “Autumn Redleaf”
