Little Baby Birds Flaunt Fancy Hats With The Utmost Sophistication

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes all it takes is a baby bird in a snazzy cap to brighten your day.

Today, you're in cluck.

Maine-based photographer Julie Persons snapped photos of several little, darling chicks sporting what might just be summer's hottest fashion trend (hats!). Some of the caps are hand-crafted by Persons, some were purchased in local shops and all are adorable. Persons, who's from a farm just outside the town of Norridgewock, Maine started the hobby when her 7-year-old daughter tried to accessorize some of the baby birds they were keeping at home. See their work below.

  • Versatility at its best: This bird's look works for a casual day at the beach and a more up-scale summer yacht fete.

  • Making an entrance doesn't have to be gaudy. This chick pulls off her statement crown without being too showy.
