This is a blog about birds. There will be birds here. There will be bird videos here. There will be artsy birds here, there will be lulzy birds here, there will be cute birds here. There will be bird photos here. There will be all kinds of birds. There might be bird noises here. Show us what your bird looks like. Submit some birds. [Blog info tag.]
Basically, I like to stare at birds. Why are they so awesome? Hey birds:

(This blog is only NSFW for cursing and other lulz. Otherwise it will be more tame than my personal Tumblr.)

Organized plastics found in albatross stomachs in Hawaii. Educational, and a bit gruesome after 2:00. From the show Message in the Waves, BBC Hawaii.
Video to make you bummed for the day. This is what we do to our birds and sea life. This is not just affecting some sea gulls. This is affecting everything that lives in or near our oceans. This impacts you even if you come no closer to the sea than a Filet-o-Fish Sandwich. Our animals consume this trash. So do we.
(I’m not speaking to vegs and vegans here, so just calm your tits before you even start; I know how Tumblr works, kids. I also know, very personally, that some of us cannot possibly function as vegetarians or vegans for health reasons. We’re not getting into that right now. It is enough that we should have to think about this problem and understand that we’re all responsible for it. I like to remind people of it now and again just to see them soil themselves in legitimate fear.)
For more insight into this fucking horrifying mess, just Google any variation of “pacific ocean plastic” or look into the North Pacific Gyre.

BIRDS IN GENERAL
Oh my god, my brother told me that crows/ravens are very good at immitating human speech and he showed me this video and… it’s so cool… yet so unsettling
Quoth the raven… wakka wakka…
My family know’s a lady who owns some type of crow/blackbird. The thing cusses like a sailor.
Crows are actually said to be the most intelligent animals on the planet. They have unparalleled problem-solving and logic skills, remember faces decades after seeing them only once or twice, live in complex societies, have a common language that their offspring pass down, and somehow communicate stories and finite details through oral tradition over vast distances and generations.
Crows are also the evilest mother fuckers on the planet and used to pick on the turkey vulture that shared the enclosure with two crows when I worked at the zoo.
Fuck. This. Shit.
they are the most badass animal I’m sorry but no one can ever convince me otherwise
Who taught it to speak, Microsoft Sam?
Two dozen recovering ducks were able to swim for the first time ever after being rescued from a horrible hoarding situation.

I remember when I was a kid, I thought I was hot stuff for diving down and touching the drain in the deep end of the pool. A few years later, I went snorkeling in the Florida Keys and reached the unimaginable depths of 20 feet! That’s nearly seven whole meters if you believe my story!
Cormorants make all that look like child’s play. Some species of marine birds can dive to depths exceeding 150 feet in search of fishy meals. By having a low body fat percentage and partially wetting feathers, they can dive deep with much less buoyancy.
These scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Society attached a camera to the back of a cormorant as it dove 140 feet below the surface to catch a fish! So cool, and such an amazing evolutionary adaptation.
You know, because it’s not enough to be able to FLY.
