Lively Thread Describes Tense Face Off Between One Man And A Bird

When most of us think of unconventional home intruders, we're more likely to recall the image of a flamboyant, striped-shirted cat burglar of The Sims than members of the animal kingdom. Wildlife doesn't tend to have a taste for the great indoors, unless you're dealing with something that is a case for pest control.

That being said, there can be some unfortunate exceptions. This is what Twitter user @michaelharriot recently found out, when he found himself having a confrontation with one surprisingly aggressive bird after it flew into his kitchen. Anyone who has dealt with an unwanted feathered guest can tell you that it's a task getting them to leave, but this one seemed especially difficult. You know you have it hard when you have to involve multiple household utensils.

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.

All animals can get injured, but for the most part, when we think of rescues, we think of cats and dogs. 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.

Few species in the animal kingdom give people as much everyday joy as birds do. Their capacity to inspire us knows no bounds, from their plumage to their song to their ability to fly. This gets repaid in feeders and birdbaths, and for the most hardcore enthusiasts, there's even a hobby dedicated to observing them.

This video from Karen Han and Brian David Gilbert extolls the simple pleasures of birdwatching, a nerdy pastime that is also completely innocent and wholesome. Innocent, that is, until the Bird God gets involved.

Never have we imagined that ravens can be such affectionate and adorable animals. They get such a bad rep - so scary, don't go near them. Loki though, Loki is the most adorable raven we've ever seen in our lives. He's comes when he's called, he preforms tricks, he responds when talked to, and he has the deepest voice we've ever heard - the last thing we expected was for him to sound like that. 

Birds are honestly so underrated - they can be so playful and wholesome. This is not the first time that birds have taken over the hearts of the people on the internet, they've done it many times. For example, when birds speaking in different accents went viral on twitter. We love birds, and now, we love ravens too.

Meanwhile In The UK: Seagull Shoplifts, Nobody Knows What To Do About It

Is there any bird out there that has the same cold-blooded criminal instinct as the seagull? Sure, magpies love taking shiny things and cuckoos get away with infanticide, but nothing can compare to the insult that is a gull stealing an ice cream clean out of your hand

As a species, they definitely have made a name for themselves by being greedy jerks. Sometimes, though, the lengths they will go to satisfy that greed have to be applauded. 

Recently, one bird has been admired by British Twitter users for going the extra mile and indulging in a little shoplifting. Casually walking into a grocery store and stealing a sandwich, a bystander captured the heist in all its glory and pointed out that it had forgotten to complete the meal with a snack and drink. 

The video also captures two witnesses to the crime. One person wants to help their feathered friend open the door it is struggling with, while another appears to be a shameless Karen all too happy to chase the gull for its ill-gotten food. While they might have totally opposing stances on bird-related theft, they confirm what the rest of the video already makes clear: this is a seagull's world, and we're just living in it.

Tumblr Thread: African Grey Parrots Are The Smartest Jerks

Whenever we hear about the shenanigans that people have with their pet birds, as people who've never had birds for pets, we always have a bit of a hard time understanding. It seems… almost impossible for these birds to have so much personality, let alone for them to be jerks. And yet… we've heard of a parrot purposefully messing with a dog, we've heard of parrots behaving like absolute jerks. We've even heard of a peacock acting like a jerk

But now, we think we've come across the ultimate species of bird jerks - the African grey parrot. We came across tumblr thread with stories that are so hilariously insane about them, we simply had to share it with all of you guys. Don't forget though, after reading all of these jerk-bird stories, that birds can be totally adorable too

Birds are hilarious. They do so many things that we think are absolutely ridiculous and amazing: from pigeons loving bedtime so much, they decide to put themselves to sleep, to parrots being the biggest jerks who have no sense of self-preservation, whatever birds do somehow manages to make us laugh. Especially when they're talking birds. Some of the things they say have us losing it.

And this gorgeous little round birb has something very important to say. Or rather, it has someone very important to imitate, sometimes successfully and other time less so - a chicken. And we're in love, even with the most unsuccessful of its attempts.

A bit of kindness to animals can go a long way, and sometimes, it can even form the most adorable, unique interspecies friendships. That is the case with this wholesome video in which a hummingbird - amazingly - waits outside of its favorite human's window, waiting to be hand-fed by it. We've never seen anything quite like this. It's almost like you can actually feel the affection that this bird has for this human.

We've fallen in love with this beautiful unique bird just as much as its human, and it's not even because we love birds in general and think that birds are incredibly silly and funny. It's because this bird and its human have one of the most wholesome stories we've heard of.
