These tiny birds are easily distinguishable from other birds due to their egg shape and a unique pattern that makes them look like they have a giant mustache. Not only that – Bearded Reedlings seem to love doing tiny splits between branches!

Males are distinguishable for their bluish-grey heads.

Even though male and female birds look similar at first glance, there are subtle differences between the two.

Female birds are a little more pale in color and don’t have the big mustaches, black streaks under their tails and their beaks are darker than males.

You can spot Bearded Reedlings all year long across Europe and Asia as they do not migrate.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
