There is always an element of humor when it comes to wildlife because as a human we try to humanize everything that we see. Every critter is unique and has its own characteristics which we identify with human emotions. Sometimes this can be a great thing because it forces us to be more engaged with the subject but other times it forces us to want to get involved in mother nature when we really shouldn’t be. It’s a unique line.
When it comes to humorous subjects the Willow Ptarmigan falls into that category pretty darn well. Their call sounds like something no animal would make and yet they do. Then there are moments like these that we all can identify with. Annoying bugs flying around his head and all he wants is to be left alone.
