Fleetwood Mac’s late 1970s aesthetic is best remembered for the contrast of its dark, hairy men and flowy blonde women. But even many fans still don’t realize that Stevie Nicks herself sported a dark mustache at one time.
This is understandable because photos and film were relatively low resolution in those days. But we can now clearly see for ourselves thanks to digital imaging enhancement techniques.
Similarly, no one had noticed the adorably impressive mustache sported by Plover Park’s new beauty Stevie Nicks until she was seen up close during her banding yesterday.
It wasn’t until Stevie came out of the bag and was in hand for her banding and checkup that her dark little secret also came out.
I know, I know. I’m not supposed to make jokes or tell happy stories about skilled experts with stacks of permits working with healthy endangered birds as part of their recovery. I’m not supposed to show them smiling, enjoying their work, and genuinely loving these birds to the point of tears and giggles. It’s serious business, and I may be sending the wrong message. But I can’t help it. Like Stevies’ mustaches, it is a hidden secret too wonderful not to celebrate and enhance.
Thanks to Kashi, Emily, and Bri for another successful banding of Plover Park’s next generation of pairs. I hope this is the first line in a song we’ll be listening to for years.
I don’t know what goes on at Plover Park, but the birds are always stunners! Stevie joins a long line of beauties from this site. Welcome, our sweet mustached sprite!
I know, Todd Pover’s Plover Park is a magnet for beauty.
