Puffed Up

Right in front of us sat this tiny bird in a high wind. He was struggling to keep his balance, and was all puffed up to keep warm. No other birds around. It made me wonder about him...





 “If you puff yourself up, you’ll get the wind knocked out of you. But if you’re content to simply be yourself, your life will count for plenty.”

Matthew 23

Nice pretty bird but so alone on the branch. Its feathers are all ruffled by the wind.

He's an adorable puffy little guy. I always feel sorry for the birds out there in weather that makes us run for cover. Of course they're used to it but still can't help feeling bad for them

No doubt the weather caught it off guard, and just had to hang on. Cute little fellow.

I do love this puffy little guy/gal.. so adorable and people who get puffed up are not adorable for sure and need the wind knocked out of them per that verse

This is such a pretty little bird. I usually find someone to poke me when I get all puffed up.
