I just learned about a bird species called Golden Plover. Their chicks have an amazing camouflage: their baby fluff resembles MOSS!
LOOK AT THEM! JUST LOOK AT THEM!
…Oh to be a tiny golden plover lying in the moss safe and sound waiting for your mom to bring you some worms…
ATTENTION: IT IS NOW TIME FOR MOSS
Reminds me of the “Tapera Naevia” aka Striped Cuckoo whose chicks look like Pine Cones, so now we have “Moss Birb” and “Pine Cone Birb”
