Mr. Attitude

Male Goldfinch in mating plumage

“You talkin’ t’me? You talkin’ to me?

“You talking to me? I don’t see nobody else…you talkin’ to me?

“You talkin’ to me?

“Then who the freak else are you talkin’t to?”

Now, I don’t expect Mr. Attitude to pull a revolver on me…

And he doesn’t look a whole lot like Robert de Niro—although his attitude does resemble a certain character immortalized by the great actor, in a certain film by Martin Scorsese.

But the color of my friend here is, don’t fail to notice, Taxi Yellow.

Personally, I wouldn’t mess with him.
