    Bird - foxhounders-deactivated20160813 my friend left her window open in her bedroom and came back to find this look at his self-satisfied little face, the cheeky shit motherfucking australia EELEE S0

    Oh goodness, the second-hand pain we feel from looking at this picture is intense. Imagine coming home and seeing a bird that isn't even yours peck away at all of the keys on your keyboard. Oh, the pain. Oh, we would have cried so much.

    Font - amour-vengeance if there was a post to describe australia, this is it soloontherocks wait. you mean to tell me this isn't even a pet bird? that in australia, you have wild birds that just fly from house to house with the express purpose of fucking shit up? fucking HELL australia, what is wrong with you?

    Honestly, the more we hear about Australian birds (and all other Australian animals, quite frankly), the more we never want to visit. But then, a picture of a koala comes out of nowhere, and suddenly, Australia doesn't look so heckin' bad anymore.

    Font - millshouse why has nobody mentioned the fact that in australia there are 3-4 months a year where everybody just accepts that they're going to get attacked by magpies. It is literally called "swooping season" and these birds will fly down to peck your fucking face, and people get their eyes ripped out and shit, it's fucking brutal. sociopathic-italian-grandmas My teacher had to go to hospital and have surgery because of swooping season. It was in the parking lot of school and all the kids

    Font - elidyce Follow Interesting thing about magpies - they're not great at identifying individual humans visually, but if you make yourself identifiable in some way they're usually open to reason. We used to have some very aggressive swoopers in our back yard - as soon as they realised that the humans *inside* the fence never bothered them and were the source of the delicious compost heap, they turned into flying black and white guard dogs who would viciously assault any passing stranger but n

    Font - There was another little group of magpies in the park who would attack any solo pedestrian but never bothered anyone walking a dog or pushing a pram, because apparently those were identifiable traits indicating a non-threatening human. In the spirit of inquiry, I started going out of way to be polite to the magpies - carefully my walking a wide arc around them when they were on the ground, etc - and emitting an identifiable call of 'hello birdie' before swooping season started.

    Font - I spent the next ten years crossing that park at least once a day and as long as I turned at the first flutter of wings and said 'hello birdie' to the magpie waiting to attack as soon as my back was turned, I was fine. Every time, the magpie would stare at me for a minute and then fly off to harass some other pedestrian because apparently the magpies and I, we were cool. Parrots are a lot less open to negotiation, and the little bastards travel in flocks. Beware the parrots.
