Gadzooks! How cute! And he looks very plushy, like a stuffed boid.

Also, if I'm identifying him correctly, he has pretty much the funniest common name of any bird in the world (other than the blue-footed booby): I think he's a Great Tit.

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 10:08 PM

hello welcomes to Hungurzz, what do you think of us now...???????
Think I am Cute???

(Chickadees are a kind of tit that lives in the U.S. - Great Tits live in Europe. And quite possibly in other places, too.)

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 10:18 PM

A quick google image search confirms that it's a Great Tit. Which is freaking hilarious. I love goofy animal names.

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 10:20 PM

Take cover below! Dear heavens, what about the children!

Seriously, he looks like he has Mothra for lunch.

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 10:27 PM

Speaking of chickadees, there was a discussion a while back to come up with a collective noun for tits. (Like a flock of birds, or a school of fish.)

It was determined that tits grouped on a branch were a rack of tits, and tits seen flying together in the sky were a jiggle of tits.

If that's not official, it ought to be.

Holy jebus, this photo SCARED ME when I opened up the page. THE BIRDS! THE BIIIRRRDDSS!

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 11:12 PM

Greatest tit ever.

Hahaha at Yubi...I'm thinking of all sorts of addendums not fit for posting.

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 11:32 PM

that's amazing!

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 11:38 PM

Genetic engineering gone mad.

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 11:39 PM

I'm pretty sure the Swedish name for that one is talgoxe, which would translate into something like lard-ox. Great Tit is a lot funnier. :-)

We have a couple of boirds called "tita" though... talltita and entita. And when I looked that up on Wikipedia, I found that their particular family of titor, (poecile) is called - *drumroll* - chickadees!

 |  Dec 30, 2007 at 11:42 PM

De rare Hoonkarian cheeckadees.

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 12:09 AM

He's a hungry??? Looks like someone fed him too much and now he's going to chomp US all into tiny pieces.

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 12:21 AM

omg! beeeg bird!

major coolness and laughs

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 01:14 AM

My, does he ever look *peeved*!

FYI the word "tita" in Hawaii refers to a tough lady - perhaps appropriate, but I thought you should know!

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 02:39 AM

Aww! Look at those cute beedy eyes. :)

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 03:57 AM

Happy New Year to everyone here!

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 04:13 AM

(I won't have internet tomorrow)

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 04:17 AM

We saw these birds everywhere in Austria. They're just as common there as chickadees are here. But when we talked about them in the fancy hotel elevator, people would look at us funny. I guess they knew enough English to recognize the funny meaning of great tit, but not enough to know the English name of their Kohlmeise. Before we went, I had bought a European bird guide and hand-written in the German names. But I don't have it with me right now. So hooray for Google. And thanks for bringing back a great memory. What a great photo!

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 04:39 AM

PS to DC: You're right about Talgoxe. See http://www.mumm.ac.be/~serge/birds/search_en.html

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 04:43 AM

Why is it that bird names seem to have an affinity for breasts?? Great tits, hooters (owls), boobies, etc???

Catman Dude =^-.-^=
 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 05:48 AM

Here in the U.S. we have the bushtit and the tufted titmouse.

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 05:58 AM

is anyone else getting this chnlove.com ad on CO now? CO may not have control over what ads google puts in the googleAds box, but this one might as well be asianfetish.com with that smiling white guy going over to pick up his mail order bride in china. :O call me a nuffer, but racism is not cute...

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 06:08 AM

Catman Dude, perhaps it's the other way around? I mean, perhaps we have decided to name this favorite part of the female anatomy after lovely birds? Hmmm?

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 06:11 AM

well somehow this killed their webcam :( I wanted to go watch.

does anyone else watch raccooncam.com ?

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 06:34 AM

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 06:50 AM

rad_cuteologist, it's not really racism, but yeah, I agree that C.O. isn't the place for Asian personal ads. I could also do without the "Get Naked Now!" gals in their undergarments, but oh well.

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 06:57 AM

ee's all like "sup doods, can i borrow a cup of shuhgar? I'ze makin New Years suet cakes and I'ze ran out!"
*hands you a giant sized measuring cup*

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 07:15 AM

It looks as if he's about to grab that white car in his claws, carry it off to his Great Tit lair (most likely a DD cup), and nawm on it!

 |  Dec 31, 2007 at 07:26 AM

Ya know, here she is, just
going about her day - checking her feathers in this nice, reflective spot
and what do we do??
We take her picture!
What ever happened to privacy?
Can't a birdy just adjust a feather anymore?
