(Photo credit to Robin at DharmaBums, who was kind enough to send it along to me.  Love it!)

Here's the Sunday Talking Head line-up.  There are actually a few interesting possibilities this morning — wow, and there's hot coffee and apple coffee cake at my house.  Hmmm…I suppose a girl shouldn't get used to this, now should she?  Anyway, here's the line-up:

Today's birding photo is a lovely little bushtit — these are tough to spot with their buff-colored feathers, and this photo is such a great capture of one of these birds, I just had to share it with everyone.  It's another chilly morning here, and all the birdies on my feeders are fluffed out trying to stay warm with a little more air under their feathers.  I'm just happy to be inside and toasty with a fresh cuppa coffee.
