hair feather day
U is for UGLY.
Often moulting birds look UGLY! This male red-winged blackbird is loosing his feathers but will soon grow new ones.
Closeup of ugly
This is natural and in this case happened just after mating season.
Leaving cups in the forest is not natural and is very ugly. Just sayin'. I'm sure I'm preaching to the converted, right?
Hate litter anywhere! Sure is ugly but a great shot.
Good thing the moulting occurs after mating or else there would be no babies. :)
A bad feather day indeed. Your photos are great though!

Cudności:)))Usmiech na twarzy od rana, ptaszysko urzekające!
totally agree with your "trash talk" - so true. i love the sayings that folks say ... leave only footprints, take pics nothing more. there are so many.
you never ever leave trash,
silly people. ( :
Yes, it is a bad feather day! Poor bird! I hate to see people leaving their trash behind. Enjoy your day!
Enough to give a bird a complex.
Quite a bad feather day for that fellow!
Compared to yesterday's beauty, yup you got 2 uglies.
your ugly is beautiful.. a true bad feather day... good thing he has no mirror. as for the other ugly, the actions of people are sometimes really ugly.
always feel sorry for the birds when they molt. :) litter is just sorry...
Looks like an old man. Fortunately in my next door State Park that I frequent nearly every day little litter is seldom seen. I think it is because it takes too much effort to get in there and those who litter are too lazy.
The blackbird will look handsome again soon enough I'm sure!
I hate litter, even worse than disposable cups in the woods are those people who put their dog poo in bags and then hang the bags in the trees!
Excellent shots of the RWB! I have never seen one molting like that. My pet peeve is littering, especially in wildlife habitats. Curses!
Ah, bad feather day indeed -- almost as bad as my reflection in the mirror this morning!! I, too, am always upset by the littering everywhere these days, but it is particularly disgusting in the wildlife habitats!! Thanks for a great post and reminder!!
The red-winged blackbird looks like he could be related to the vulture...LOL
I will never understand going in the woods/trails and leaving garbage behind. Frankly, don't understand taking it in the first place.
Out at the strip pits, people leave all kinds of stuff behind. It is a pity.
It's sad how some people have no respect. I adore your birdy though! Pretty.
Poor bird - he is probably not pleased to have his pic taken looking like that! ;-)
The molting makes him look like a little vulture!!
That poor bird looks mighty sad.
Those poor birds are all so horrible looking when they molt. I can't believe people would leave a cup like that.
Poor bird. She is a cancer survivor.
BTW, I have removed the word "Ugly" from my dictionary.
I hope the bird isn't self-conscious this time time. Not only the cup, but and "ugly" person left that trash there.
You are completely right on all counts. dropping in from Alphabe Thursday.
How do you make two kinds of ugly look so good?
Someone needs a feather transplant.
And it always seems to be a Timmie's cup, doesn't it?
Poor RWBB. I have seen a number of cardinals and blue jays bald like that.. and one grackle. Never a rwbb though.
The poor bird and disgusting habit for some folks leaving their litter behind.
That litter is just plain ignorant to leave behind. That stuff grinds my gears... can ya tell?!
Poor old Blackbird looks like a buzzard. And the cup shot is totally trashy. MB
Molting birds are definitely unnatractive. We do pack it in/pack it out and try to leave the area better than we found it.
This was a unique link for the letter U.
Thank you for sharing it.
A nice theme
Oh! It needs a cap. :)
Poor boy! must have had a hard life..
The bird is full of character!
Stick stuffers make me even more mad than just normal litter throwers - they had to think about what they were doing!
I'm putting the kettle on to lower my blood pressure!

Oh my that poor blackbird. I didn't know they moulted like that! Now that Tim's cup is really upsetting but made for an interesting photo.
Love the bird ~ none of us are very pretty when moltening ~ Great shots!

I don't understand the thought process of "I'll just throw this cup here in this wonderful pristine woodland."
Sometime life is unpleasant, but the situation won’t stay forever! Beautiful photos
I learn so much when I visit...I'd like to think the wind took that cup into the trees from some unwary camper...♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/urban- life/
yup the moulting bird sure is ugly...as is the Timmy's cup
Poor thing...he does look ugly! But he will get new head feathers and be beautiful again. Scattered trash is never beautiful! :-(
