This is a white-crowned sparrow, suspicious that the camera will steal not his soul, but his meal.

The little-heralded band The Buffalo Muttons Siblings was briefly unknown in the late 60’s as a rip-off of both The Cowsills and The Partridge Family. Driven by their money-hungry father, they recorded and released at least one single a week – all of which sank quickly past the bargain to the trash bin. After years of their dad’s crappy songwriting, the kids secretly wrote and recorded a protest song, Feelin’ Stabby. Sadly, he discovered and destroyed the tapes before they could be released. Afterward, he forced the family to record Simon and Garfunkel’s similarly-named song, which scored him a chart hit and record company bonuses. His kids got some extra TV time.
