Basically, I like to stare at birds. Why are they so awesome? Hey birds:
Y U SO FLY???
(This blog is only NSFW for cursing and other lulz. Otherwise it will be more tame than my personal Tumblr.)
So, in the middle of everything today, we ran across a hellaciously distressed momma mallard and a bunch of her baby ducks that had fallen down a sewer grate. Another guy was already trying to fish them out, so my friend and I called animal control before we tried to fish the rest of them out. When Animal Control got there, we had all of them out and the mother duck quacking very happily. I was surprised - none of us got snapped at or hurt. I was even holding onto a bag at one point that had all of them in it and she just watched me.
I love momma duck standing on that guy’s butt.
Baby kestrels are pretty much a head with wings.

After nearly a year together at the Odense Zoo in Denmark, the same-sex couple attempted to become parents of their own. Keepers witnessed the pair trying to steal other couples’ eggs. And during brooding season, the penguins even tried to incubate a dead herring.
“[The two] seriously wanted to stay with an egg,” zoologist Nina Christensen told The Star.
The Odense Zoo reports that the penguins were recipients of an unexpected blessing when a female penguin laid not one but two eggs. She ultimately ditched the second egg, which afforded the male couple to become adoptive parents.
However, before they were given the egg, the males had to practice on artificial eggs. Once proven capable, they received and successfully incubated the egg.
