Tumblr Thread: The 4 Foot Tall Red-Bearded Vulture

Guys, get ready to be scared and impressed all at the same time. We're about to give some love to yet another insanely underappreciated animal, but we're going to do it from the safety of our homes, because this bloody bird is a little terrifying. Meet the 4 foot tall red-bearded vulture. 

We know that birds are clawsome at this point, don't even lie. Parrots can impersonate different accents and be jerks to other pets. Crows sometimes collect gifts and bring them to people. And the red-bearded vulture? Well, the red-bearded vulture eats a diet of bones and covers itself in blood for a reason which, even after we read, we can't really comprehend. It's a cool bird though, and we always love learning more about the animal kingdom, even when it scares us a bit.

Get ready for one of the craziest adventure, everyone - a video so long with so many twists and turns, you will not be able to look away. This adventure is one of friendship, trust, having babies, territorialism, and mild swearing. And we are insanely invested. 

Meet Steven, the wild seagull that has become an internet sensation. Feeding Steven on Youtube has been attempting for the past 69 days to gain Steven's trust by feeding him food better than we feed ourselves - all the way to lobster and caviar. And throughout these 69 days, the internet has been blessed with one of the most wholesome human & animal friendships ever. 

Steven is still wild, of course, but he seems to be accepting his new human friend more and more over time. We hope their friendship flourishes even more, and we hope Steven's new family survives and lives a long and happy life.

Red-tailed Hawk With Injured Wing Found By Pedestrian And Taken To Vet For Treatment

Oof we absolutely hate to see animals that are injured, or in pain. However, it fills our hearts with hope and wholesome goodness when kind folks passing by manage to spot this phenomenon and promptly intervene! We truly believe that it is part of our responsibility as humans on earth to protect our fellow animal species and always lend a helping hand!

Today an Imgur user came across an injured red-tailed hawk and immediately intervened. Let's learn a bit more about red-tailed hawks shall we? According to All About Birds: "This is probably the most common hawk in North America. If you've got sharp eyes you'll see several individuals on almost any long car ride, anywhere. Red-tailed Hawks soar above open fields, slowly turning circles on their broad, rounded wings." Our bird in question was taken to the nearest vet who could accommodate her! We wish her a super speedy recovery.

Strikingly Stunning Birb: Victoria Crowned Pigeons Dazzle In Blue

Okay, we have seen many beautiful animals in our time, but this stunning birdmight just take the cake. "Strikingly beautiful and intelligent, the Victoria crowned pigeon is a fascinating ground bird to watch. It is common to see at a zoo or aviary. Although this is a gentle bird, it is not a bird for novices. Even pigeon fanciers and experienced bird owners need to ensure they have the dedicated space and time required by these majestic creatures." Via the Spruce Pets.

"This bird is the largest living pigeon and the closest remaining relative to the extinct dodo bird. It was named in honor of Queen Victoria for its flashy blue crown of intricate lace-like patterns and its regal poise." Who knew, this bird and the extinct dodo are cousins! It comes as no surprise to us thatthis bird was named after royalty, just look at how vibrant the color of its feathers are! Thismajestic bird looks like it was destined to sit on the throne of our hearts.  Via the Spruce Pets.

Sea Eagles Spotted At Scottish Nature Reserve For First Time In Over 100 Years

According to a report by The Guardian, Sea Eagles have returned to Loch Lomond for the first time in over a century! That's a longgg time. Since their arrival to the area in early March, they have since been seen searching for suitable nesting sites, suggesting that they intend to stay in the area. "It is believed that this is the first time sea eagles have settled in Loch Lomond since their UK extinction in the early 20th century due to persecution and habitat changes, with the last known UK sighting before their reintroduction reported in Shetlend in 1918."

NatureScot's operations manager, Paul Roberts, had this to say: "This is the latest chapter in the continuing success story of sea eagle conservation. Along with our partners, we carefully manage the reserve to offer rich and diverse habitats to support a wide range of birds and other wildlife, so it's very rewarding to see the sea eagles return to Loch Lomond after all these years. We're working closely with Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority (LLTNPA) and RSPB Scotland to protect the birds and we are urging visitors to enjoy the reserve responsibly and make sure they don't disturb them." Story Via The Guardian.

Way to go NatureScot! We love to hear about wildlife conservation success stories, looks like the sea eagles have made their return and are here to stay!!

Calling all bird lovers! Gather round! It all started out with one magpie bird and his dear friend, a local Australian woman. The magpie would approach her playfully, sit on her knee, and follow her around lovingly. Eventually, enough trust was built up and the bird began bringing his magpie bird friends to join in on all the fun. We loved watching this beautiful and wholesome relationship between man and bird blossom. Much like human relationships, it was built on trust and comfort. Perhaps humans are not so different from animals after all!

Magpies are known for their bold personalities and intelligence, both are clearly evident in this video. We can see here that they are also very social creatures. They communicate with their cute little bird voices. In general, we find that birds are very underappreciated creatures that have so much love to give and wholesome energy to contribute to the world. Enjoy!

That's why some animal rescues completely take us by surprise with how heart-wrenchingly amazing they are. We've come across stories amazing stories such as: an 'ugly' fish being rescued from abusive owners, a rescued bobcat kitten whose favorite toy is fennel, an injured fox being rescued using using a box of cat treats

And the latest one we are presenting to you here is the story of a bald eagle who was injured in the wild and had its elbow dislocated. Never did we think we'd feel such heartbreak over an injured bald eagle, but we do, and we are so so so thankful to the amazing people who are helping it until it can be released back into the wild on its own.
