I hate this time of year. When the new feathers start growing in on my eyelids, they itch! If you click on the photo you'll see a larger version, and flickr members can view "all sizes" to look at the photo really close up. Then you'll see just what I'm going through.
I take a bath every night but I just can't make the process go faster. Molting sucks, but at least when it's over I look handsome in my perfect new feathers!
