So I saw the Hunger Games last week and in the spirit of all that is box office holy, I present to you the Bird on Fire: the Golden-crowned Kinglet (Regulus satrapa). The adults all have yellow patches on top of their otherwise dull brown feathers but the males are the only ones who sport the extra splash of red.
For those of you who saw the movie, did you think it was very good? I must say, I read all of the books and was pretty disappointed. I felt like they didn’t develop the characters at all. It was more of a rehash than a full film to me. Those that didn’t read the books have told me they really liked it, though. I guess I just expected more than what I got. Bummer.
