My avatar?

Mine is a Carolina wren, I believe.

I must admit that when I look at your avatar, Dap, I don't initially see a wren, but instead, I see an Indian (Southeast Asian) in traditional Indian head garb of white cloth, with a side view of his face. If this sounds crazy, I understand, but, as we often make things out of patterns we see, my mind always wants to see the Indian with the cloth head wrapping rather than the bird. There, I've said it, ha ha.

Does anyone else see what I'm talking about, or am I certifiable???

Funny...I remember you mentioning this before (years ago, maybe)...when I squint, I can sort of see it. If I recall, I vaguely remember someone creating a fuzzy image from my avatar which makes it easier to see.

I don't think you are certifiable, but I do wonder why your brain creates this image and not the wren...despite now knowing it is a wren.

We should make a optical illusion out of it...like the old woman/young woman one.

I'm not sure what the white cloth worn as a headpiece in India is called, but the bright white clouds above the wren make for a great head piece, in my imagination's eye.

blank stare

Since you told us about the white clouds being the headpiece, I can now see it when I squint REAL hard.
The birds back becomes the headband, it's belly the right facing face, ear inclusive! The tree itself becoming the mans dark collard coat.
