Healthy Dose Of Animal Snaps To Get The Heart Beating

It's been a tough week and we could all use some fresh and nutritious animal snaps to get us back into shape! 

Bird snaps, doggo snaps and cat snaps -- oh my! We can never get enough of animal snaps. They are pure, often times hilarious, and when they aren't hilarious they're usually downright freakin' wholesome as heck. Either way, it's definitely a win-win-win. 

Bring on the animal snaps! If you're in the market for some extra-snaps featuring only cats -- we've got you covered.

Crowto-Bombing: When Crows Insert Themselves In Another Bird Group (Short Thread)

It's not something we've ever noticed before but we're thankful someone did! 

Tumblr user, todaysbird, shared a series of pics of crows infiltrating other bird groups like it's no big deal. 

Perhaps, it isn't a big deal...or perhaps they're secretly expanding their bird army, by recruiting other bird species. Who knows. 

In the meantime, we'll be enjoying these random pics and act as if we aren't onto their ploy...

Great Ducking Birb Collection To Ruffle Your Feathers

Birds (now known as birbs in the meme world) don't often get the recognition they truly deserve. Sure, they're literally everywhere -- pooping on your car, head, anything and everything you can think of... and sure some have certain calls that are less than pleasant (especially at 5am). But when you think about it, some of the funniest and weirdest memes are birb-related. 

So let's give these birbs our undivided attention, they deserve it. For a minute.

New Study: Migratory Birds Are Shrinking As a Consequence of Climate Change

A University of Michigan-led study of approximately 70,000 North American migratory birds from 52 species found that body sizes have decreased and wing length has increased in all of the species since 1978. 

David Willard, a Field Museum ornithologist, has measured the Windy City's dead birds since 1978. Data from his calipers and scales reveal decades-long trends in bird bodies: Their legs, on average, are growing shorter. They have lost weight. Their wings are getting slightly longer.
These changes are present in nearly all of the species he measured, according to a study of 70,716 bird specimens from almost 40 years published Wednesday in the journal Ecology Letters. Morphing birds, Willard, and his colleagues say, reflect a changing climate: "Our findings suggest that warming‐induced body size reduction is a general response to climate change, and reveal a similarly consistent and unexpected shift in body shape. We hypothesise that increasing wing length represents a compensatory adaptation to maintain migration as reductions in body size have increased the metabolic cost of flight".

Gangs Of Wild Turkeys Are Causing Chaos in New Jersey

According to News 12, several areas in the Garden State, New Jersey, are having issues with bold, menacing and mannerless gangs of wild turkeys. The birds, which can grow to be 25 lbs. and can reach running speeds of 20 mph, are reportedly breaking windows, blocking roads, "pecking at cars and behaving aggressively," with one resident telling News 12 that, "Sometimes I can't get out of my car. They go to attack you."

While residents are doing their best to avoid interactions with the birds,  they are also sharing their pest problems with the world on Twitter. One of them is MLB all-star Todd Frazier who tweeted about it, saying the birds "have come close to harming my family and friends".

"In this story of kindness, friendship, and the fear of being left behind, a friendship takes flight as a mouse that wants to fly and an injured bird cross paths. 

Final film from the School of Visual arts. I directed, background painted, animated, and did about half of the cleanup/coloring myself! The rest was handled by my awesome team in the credits. 

Thank you to Colin Andrew Grant for the fantastic score, and thanks to SVA for the two grants that helped me produce this film! And thank you all so much for watching. 

This was a huge labor of love for me, and I'm so glad I finally get to share it!"
