Owls Are Creeps And This Video Proves It

I have gone on record as a person who, with a few exceptions (teeny tiny sparrows that stay at least five feet away from me), hates birds. I mean, I recognize they’re importance to the overall eco system, so it’s not like I want them all to die, though I am certainly happy to eat…

Crow Makes Sled Out Of Mayonnaise Lid, Has Best Snow Day Ever

My mom and I are a lot alike, but one way in which we differ is that she loves bird and I think they are gross not cool dinosaurs. Especially the big ones. GAG. So, my mom loves to send me photos of birds she thinks are beautiful but knows will scare me — it&#8217…

Worst Nightmare: Eagle Tries To Snatch Toddler

My friends, family and coworkers always make fun of me for my terrifying fear of birds. Just watch this video of a fucking eagle swooping in and attempting to snatch a toddler and then try and tell me that these flying dinosaurs aren’t full of pure evil.

Man Gobbles At Turkeys, Turkeys Gobble Back, Amelia Cringes

This is Amelia’s self-proclaimed worst nightmare, but I don’t know. I hear turkeys are kind of social animals, and this video of a man gobbling at them, and them gobbling back is pretty hilarious. Plus, a gaggle of turkeys gobbling sounds pretty much like the laugh track to any and every stupid sitcom. I approve!

Jennifer Lawrence’s W Magazine Shoot Is My Worst Nightmare

Noooooo. Birds, especially large human-sized birds are my biggest fear. I’m suddenly very, very scared of Jennifer Lawrence. WTF, W magazine?!

Actually, Penguins Can Fly

Well, isn’t this quite a little riddle. When can a penguin — a bird that absolutely can’t normally fly — take to the sky? When it’s on a plane, silly. These two tuxedo-ed little guys were flying first class — naturally — from San Antonio to Atlanta. [YouTube]…

5 Current Trends Charles Darwin Would Probably Be Into

I think about a lot of things when I get dressed in the morning. I consider the pros and cons of shapewear. I come up with brilliant comebacks that would have been useful 3 years ago. I realize that I kind of miss the Macarena dance. And the other day I found myself thinking, I

This Cockatoo Flaps Its Wings Back And Forth

I’m not going to lie; even though I kind of, sort of hate her (and I know it’s wrong to feel hate towards a child, even a famous one), I am kind of obsessed with Willow Smith’s single “Whip My Hair.” But you know who loves it more? This cockatoo. And it really know…

British Birds In Love

A swan couple in England that has been together for seven years was forced to spend 10 days apart after the male was attacked by a dog. The dog severely injured the poor guy’s left wing, and the swan had to be rescued by firefighters in a boat, treated by a vet, and nursed back…
