Insanely-Rare Bird Photographed For First Time

Hooray for wholesome and triumph moments, during this insane time! 

We definitely will soak up any good news coming our way, because we all need it. Need to hear it and need to share it. 

The South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher was first discovered 130 years ago in 1890.

Since then, it's eluded scientists for over a hundred years because of how difficult it is to see and how is quietly darts from perch to perch, seemingly invisible.

In March 2020, a Filipino biologist, Miguel David De Leon, was able to capture the ultra-rare and mysterious bird. 

Photographed for the first time in the history of mankind, presenting the South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher!

Birds That Look Like Bernie Sanders Or As We Like To Call Him, Birdie Sanders

It's probably time to cut Donald Trump some slack and make some fun of Bernie Sanders. Apparently, there are some birds out there that look exactly like the 78-year-old senator from Vermont.

"Sky Rats" Snatching Food Right Out Of Human Hands

Seagulls are downright terrifying. There. We said it. 

However, even though we are afraid of these devils with wings -- doesn't make these photos any less funny!

Probably because we genuinely sympathize with the poor, unsuspecting folks who were about to enjoy some delicious snack-age. It's never easy to part with such precious food this way.

Popular Artist Reveals New Comic About Seabirds And Plastic Consumption

Jenny-Jinya is at it again! Breaking hearts and punching our guts -- right in the feels. 

You may recall her popular comic "Good Boy" or the "Black Cat," both devastating illustrations in which death welcomes these poor, defenseless animals whose deaths are related to mankind heartlessness or negligence. 

The artist is creating these stories to shed light on some real problems -- this time, the victim being birds and culprit? Plastic.

Plastic has been linked to a major decline of seabird populations, 67% decline between 1950 and 2010. 

Here's to hoping that this comic opens more eyes to the real problems at hand:

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.
