Birds do it, bees do it, even constipated fleas do it . . .

My Uncle Harlin spent the last decade and a half of his life going birdwatching nearly every day - "birding," they call it - and these feathered bipeds do have something fascinating about them, probably their ability to fly (most of them, anyway), a capability that fascinates us bipeds of the featherless sort.

My wife is now getting into birds, not yet birding, but finding birds online and drawing them, as below:

This first one's an Eastern Oystercatcher, but I don't know what this second one is:

Is it a fat little wren? I don't actually think so. What do readers think? Feel free to comment.

The Missus labeled it as a "굴뚝새," which Google Translate is rendering as "wren." Naver's online dictionary seems to agree.

Okay . . . but the sources don't say FAT wren, do they, huh, do they!
