Calling all bird lovers! And even if you aren't a bird lover, we're sure you can appreciate this little beauty! The Painted Bunting, a colorful bird whose feathers feature all the primary colors, is said to be America's most beautiful bird. And after seeing all the striking images of the painted bunting, it's not difficult to see why. As someone who has lived in America for a loooong time, I can personally say I have never come across a painted bunting and now it's on my bucket list for sure. 

Who wouldn't want to be graced by the presence of America's most beautiful bird, after all? This little fella is a rainbow in one, A little fun fact about painted bunting, perhaps we did come across this bird before and didn't realize it because the bright plumage of this bird (male) only comes in the second year of its life. Within its first year, it looks just like a female painting bunting, A female painting bunting is a uniform bright yellow-green.

Informative Tweets Discovering The Beauty Of Unique Pigeons

There is beauty everywhere in nature, even in the places you least expect it. You walk around outside, and every time you do, you see birds - some of them beautiful, some of them less so. But not many of you have probably stopped to admire the beauty of a pigeon. We're used to common pigeons, so we don't think about them too much, but when we see a special pigeon colored like the rainbow... well, that catches our eye. 

And it definitely caught twitter's eye, with a tweet about the pink-necked green pigeon going viral, people admiring its beauty. And luckily, there was a pigeon expert at hand to explain to us exactly what this rainbow-colored beauty is. 

tweets about the pink-necked green pigeon thumbnail includes a picture of the pink-necked green pigeon and a tweet 'Font - Rosemary Mosco (Bird And Moon Comics) @RosemaryMosco ... Replying to @RosemaryMosco Is it a pigeon or a dove? The answer is: Yes. Pigeons and doves belong to the scientific family Columbidae. Within that family, English-speaking folks basically name some species "dove" and some "pigeon" at random. Pigeons = doves. There's no real taxonomic difference. 7:13 PM - Mar 9, 2021'

Starlings Wearing Their Beautiful Cloaks Of Many Stars (Pictures)

There is nothing more beautiful than nature. Natural beautiful colors, beautiful animals, and one of the animals that is consistently one of the beautiful we see are birds. They really got mother nature's best cards - they can fly anywhere they want, they are free, they have stunning voices, and they have the most beautiful color patterns we've ever seen. Especially, the starling bird. 

One of the most underappreciated birds in our opinion. People seem to have the tendency to think of it as a pest, but if you look for one second, you will see that it is one of nature's most beautiful creations - a bird wearing a cloak of many, many stars.

World's Oldest Known Wild Bird Gives Birth At 70

A Laysan albatross named Wisdom - who is the oldest known wild bird - not only turned a whopping 70 years old this year but also reared a new chick. This chick is at the very least her 40th one, and that is a feat which stretches far and wide the knowledge humans have of how birds live. 

Wisdom, according to Gulf Doday, was banded in 1956 and is the oldest known wild bird in history. She may even be older than 70, being that her age was estimated to be 5 years at the time - earliest age an albatross reaches maturity. "Last month her new chick hatched on the Midway Atoll – a tiny scrap of land, 1,300 miles northwest of Hawaii in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean."

She has been raising her little chicks with her current mate, named Akeakamai, since about 2010, according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Albatrosses are known as birds who mate for life, but considering Wisdom's amazing age, she has had a couple mates over the years, having outlived her previous companions. 

Until early in the 21st century, it was thought that Laysan albatrosses lived around 40 years, but "Wisdom has rewritten the natural history books." "We don't know exactly how many chicks she's raised, but certainly at least 35 based on what we know about her recent years performance," said US Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Beth Flint.

Birds Who Were Named By People Who Clearly Hate Birds (Twitter Thread)

Oh, these poor birds. Can you imagine being a bird, looking up what type of bird you are only to discover you're named something like, "Demonic Squealer" or "Lonely Sad Loser?" OK, so maybe these names don't really exist but the bird names below are real and are mean! Whoever named these birds, yes, it's funny but it's also downright bullying. Thankfully, birds can't look themselves up to be hurt by these names. 

...For all we know that is. If any bird were able to figure out how to operate a computer, it would be the Corvidae family, which contains crows, ravens, rooks, magpies, etc. 

Thanks to Twitter user @stu_bot3000 for creating this amazing and entertaining thread, you have provides us with many laughs.

Strangely Adorable Gallery Of Baby Pigeons (20 Images)

Isn't it strange that a majority of us don't quite know what a baby pigeon looks like? Sure, we've all seen thousands upon thousands of pigeons... but baby pigeons? Personally, we can't say we've ever seen one in real life. However, they must exist! And these photos of baby pigeons are definitely proof of their existence. 

These photos of baby pigeons are nearly identical to how we've pictured the extinct Dodo bird of the past. They are adorable, yes. Yet, somehow extremely odd. We can't really place our finger on it, we'll just call it "strangely cute."

Tumblr Thread: Jerk Parrot Messing With Dog

Well, we should have known that talking birds would have the capacity to cause some shenanigans, but somehow... he didn't expect it to be heartbreakingly hilarious. And yes, that does sound somewhat contradictory, but it's a simple fact that reading this tumblr story makes us both snort and aww at the same time. 

Because this bird keeps on giving commands to this most innocent doggo who doesn't seem to know any better. Not only that, but the bird is sitting there, laughing at him like the most cartoonish villain while he runs around and answers its commands, confused as to why the human is not taking him on a heckin' walk if he's offering one. 

Poor Oli, but my goodness, this is ridiculously funny

tumblr thread about a bird that keeps messing with the dog thumbnail includes a picture of a confused looking dog and the caption 'Text - kingtcholla Follow MY BIRD IS SITTING IN THE TOP CORNER OF HER CAGE CALLING MY DOG’S NAME AND ASKING IF HE WANTS A TREAT AND IF HE WANTS TO GO TO OUTSIDE AND HE'S TOO STUPID TO REALIZE IT’S HER SO EVERYTIME SHE SAYS SOMETHING HE LOOKS AT ME LIKE'

Does this bird remind anyone of someone they know? We thought so too, this is bird was most likely a cat in its previous life. Constantly knocking things off a surface? That has cat written all over it! Perhaps, it's a classic case of bird hardware running cat software. We've seen it before

If a cat were to witness this bird doing what he does best, throwing things, we would assume the cat would be very proud of his successor. As are we. This has been a wonderfully short compilation of a single bird who has the need to throw, and we recognize that decision and applaud it. Why? Because this bird is our inner selves. We would love nothing more than to throw everything off the table right now but we're held back. This bird lives freely, by no one's rules. This bird is wild.

Strange Names Given To Pets Twitter Thread Goes Viral

We all have that one (/one hundred) weird name we call our pets. I call my cat "Bellybutton" sometimes, I don't know why or how it happened, but she gets it, the smart kitty. Well, apparently I'm not the only one who gives suuuper strange names to her adorable pets, and twitter has decided to prove it to me. 

It all started with one tweet by @eef_nestor that went viral that stated: "what I call my dog Spencer" followed by some of the most ridiculous names we've ever seen, names that put even my "Bellybutton" to shame. And twitter users jumped in, writing down their own ridiculous pet names with pictures to go with them, and a thread that started with one dog ended up an enormous thread with hundreds of replies that are all endlessly entertaining.
