Such a small but sharp hooked beak. These little birds are very cute but can take a chunk out of you and rip apart a mouse pretty quick.

Great portrait. Around this household those of his type are referred to as "that bad bird" as we are not fans of those who eat small songbirds for their dinner! Tongue Always welcome to mice though. Grin
