There are majestic birds, there are powerful birds — and then, there are just plain adorable birds (a scientifically-accurate description, of course). The snowy plover falls into the latter category, as evidenced in this week’s Nature Photo of the Week. Those feathers! That look! Flickr photographer Jeff Bleam snapped this cute guy at Santa Cruz, California and submitted it through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group. Thanks!
