Birds are one of the most unique and, obviously, one of the cutest groups of animals. Incredible though it may be, the beauty of these animals never ceases to stun. Even if you aren’t a birding enthusiast just yet, there is at least one bird species that just might change your mind. Bearded Reedlings are easily identifiable due to their unique appearance, which sets them apart from all other species.

They are easy to spot in nature because of how they look. Just look for a small, fluffy bird that looks like an egg and likes to rest by laying down on three branches.

They are paler and lack mustache marks and black streaks beneath their tales. Males have lighter beaks.

This species has an extreme range which is decreasing but not at alarming rates.

Males can be easily spotted for their gingerish-brown overall with bluish-grey heads.
