Bird watching is a popular activity.This recreational activity is most popular amongst retired folk who enjoy spending time in the countryside and wooded areas spotting their favorite species of bird.
There are many rare and beautiful species of birds out there...From strawberry finches with their distinct red color to a bird that can do the splits (yep, really... check them out at the end).
But once in a while, a bird comes along that totally captivates the internet.And the latest to take off may be one of the cutest we’ve seen.
Why?Well, many think they look like flying cotton balls.
These adorable fluff balls are quite common in Europe and Asia.
However, the specific group of long-tailed tits found in Hokkaido are on another level of cuteness...
