Puffy models

So, I went to the trails near my neighborhood to photograph mockingbirds for a project (I just walk my dog near the area where they nest, sit on a bench with my camera, and wait for them to fly in close to examine me). I got a few shots before my battery died; but when I looked at them on the computer, I saw that they were not going to work. It was about mid-forties outside, and the birds are all puffed out for warmth, without the sleek profile that makes them recognizable. But sort of cuddly. Guess I'll go back when we have a warm, sunny morning. Below are some meadowlarks that were a couple of trees over.
