Tumblr Thread: Cockatoo Rocking Out To Metal Music

Some animals like music, that's something that we've noticed. Cats falling asleep when music is playing, doggos head-bopping to music, but a cockatoo? We have yet to see something like that. And this cockatoo specifically might be the most punk rock, coolest cockatoo ever. He's has a haircut cooler than yours, he's more intimidating than any of us by far, and his sense of rhythm is superior to all of us

Now, there's speculation about whether this is real or if the music was added after, but considering the fact that cockatoos are knows for their drumming skills in the wild, performing elaborate drumming patterns when trying to attract females, odds are that this is very real. And this birb is amazing

Jerk Peacock Runs Around Scaring Everyone (Tumblr Posts)

So, some animals are jerks, everyone knows that. From octopuses randomly punching other fish to parrots messing with dogs to cats just being... cats. But have you ever heard of a jerk peacock? Well, meet Goofus, or, as he is more commonly known, The Death Of The Universe And The End Of All Things. He's a jerk, and we love him. 

He has the most terrifying honk-like scream in the world, and he is not afraid to use it, whether it's against innocent feral cats, his humans, or other peacocks. Of course, he's also the kind of the blanket, and he's too fancy for your shenanigans. There's just something about birds having personalities that always gets to us, and Goofus id no different. 

tumblr posts about a jerk peacock that scares everyone thumbnail includes two pictures including to peacocks mid-flight and another peacock 'The feral cats, previously unaware that the Death Of The Universe And End Of All Things is currently living as a peacock, ran off at about fifty miles an hour and hid under the barn for the rest of the day. We probably should not have named the Death Of The Universe And The End Of All Things "Goofus," actually.'

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.

No, silly kitty, you can't catch the bird on the screen, but it's sure as heck funny to watch how confused you are. 

And goodness, you better hope that they don't accidentally pause the video as they're watching, because the confusion is only going to intensify. Actually, never mind that, pause the video for them and laugh some more. And laugh at this tumblr thread that gives us the best of cats birdwatching on computers while you're at it.

Just when you think the world is missing a little kindness, you come across something that is so kind and so pure, and your faith is restored yet again. When one day, this man came across a parakeet egg inside of a cage in a pet store and found out that its mother had been sold, he did what many of us wish we had the strength to do - he took the egg home, cared for it, and helped this tiny parakeet hatch. 

So much care, time, and love has to be put into such an act of kindness. We are not only touched and thankful for this video and this person, we also find ourselves inspired to do something kind of others ourselves.

Awkwardly-Adorable Blue-Footed Boobies (12 Pics + 1 Vid)

If a bird and bowling pin became one and wore bright blue-sky shoes, then it would be the blue-footed booby. What are these strange looking birds? The blue-footed booby is native to subtropical and tropical regions of the Pacific Ocean. They can easily be recognized due to their comically bright-blue feet. However, the blue feet are actually a sexually selected trait, the male boobies will display their feet in an elaborate and quite interesting mating ritual. He will lift them up and down before strutting towards the female. 

There's no doubt about it, the blue-footed booby is as strange as it is beautiful and we can't help but love how awkward these fellas look in each image.

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."

Injured And Rescued Snowy Owl Released Back Into The Wild

About a month ago, Atlantic Veterinary College staff found an emaciated and dehydrated snowy owl near Souris, P.E.I. and rescued it. Finally, after a month in capable hands, the beautiful bird was released back into the wild. 

As reported by CBC news, an intern with the Atlantic Veterinary College Wildlife Service, Dr. Hugo Gonzalez, said that it was "amazing" for the students and staff to see the owl fly off back into the wild. And we have to agree, seeing a wild bird released back to where it's supposed to be is always a beautiful thing. 

"To be able to see a patient who came with severe emaciation, not even able to properly move or eat, up to the point where you can see that the full recovery process has been successful and just have that moment to see her properly [fly], it's definitely an amazing moment for you," Dr. Gonzalez added. 

He also reminds people that if they ever see a snowy owl in the wild, it's important to only admire it from a distance. If you come across a bird in distress, contact local officials.

Imgur User Provides Entertaining Commentary While Discovering Jacana Bird

Birds are an interesting species, there are about 400 billion birds on the planet. That's right, if they wanted, they could attack us, win, and take over the world. And who knows, maybe that is their plan. If you dive into that thought a bit deeper, with 5 billion people on the planet, this would amount to 40 to 60 birds per bird. So, yeah, they would definitely win. And one type of bird, the Jacana bird, may just freak out a majority of those people with its terrifying spider/bird hybrid legs, but the truth is way cuter than anyone would expect. 

When an Imgur user discovered the truth behind these seemingly freaky birds, they decided to share their knowledge with the world, and we are grateful.

Reddit User Befriends Crows Who In Turn Help By Getting Back At Bully Neighbors

Let's talk about crows for a moment. Most people don't tend to like birds that much, and some people even think of them as bad omens. However, crows, ravens, magpies, the whole Corvus genus are extremely intelligent animals and because of that intelligence, they can be extremely vindictive and hold a grudge for a long time. 

Not only is it a bad idea to make an enemy with one of those birds, but there have been stories of those who treat them kindly and have been rewarded in return. Crows are incredible birds and we definitely don't want them as our enemies! If these stories have thought us anything, it seems beneficial to help out the crows because maybe, just maybe, they'll surprise you in a way you wouldn't expect. Truth be told, this kindness and request should of course be given to all animals, and just showing you there may be consequences to those who aren't as kind. 

One Reddit user, u/tempthethrowaway, has shared an amazing story of how befriending crows helped them deal with some unpleasant bully neighbors. Seems like it pays off to have some feathered friends in high places! 

crows get back at bully neighbors - thumbnail of story "Our building has a decent sized crow population. I've always liked them, so I decided to make friends. Spent some time doing research on them and their diets and went out and got some snacks that would be nutritious for them. Every couple of days I'd chop up some fruits and veggies and grains and take them out to their favorite tree in a little tupperware box. I'd pick it up later and it would be empty. It got to the point where they'd know

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'
