The morning-after look

There is something about the Grey-crested Tit that reminds me of a classic morning-after look – the one after a lot of drinking, in case you get any other ideas.

Maybe it is his grey-crest which looks like a dishevelled mop of hair on a person, giving him a i-just-woke-up-and-am-groggy look. Or maybe it is that blood-shot eyes which draws ones attention like a magnet draws metal shavings. Or a combination of both of these.

Whichever it is, every time I see this bird I just can’t shake off the image of Captain Haddock, one of the most memorable drunk characters I can recollect.
