This Post Is For The Birds!

No, not The Birds.

It’s National Bird Day today! So let’s celebrate with some Sooty Owls at the Taronga Zoo, eh? Bless their sooty little heart-shaped faces!

[Like how they swivel their little heads around. -Ed]

Working Lunch

unnamed[OK guys, we need to plan the company Christmas party. First thing, order plenty of seed. And we have to make sure NO ONE spikes the egg nog this year. We all remember those drunk Tapirs from accounting, we had to call security, total buzzkill, blah blah blah. OK. What’s next?”

(Oh, these blind dates are nerve-wracking, I never know what to do… Am I supposed to say something, or does she say something? I think I have some bird seed stuck in my beak; is she staring at it? Aww, and I forgot to put on my under-wing deodorant, pee-yew!)

Definite Speakers UP For THIS One

And if your speakers are broken, run right out and buy a new pair. (I have a great pair from Bose I can recommend to you FWIW.) Why rush right out? ‘Cause you’re gonna need ’em for THIS little guy! “I can’t stop watching this video of an America Woodcock using its whole body to make little “weaan” noises. Do we have a Rule Of Cuteness for Cute Noises? Squeaking is Cute? If you make Cute noises, that’s Cute?” [*Note: Must consider this. BTW, a Woodcock is also known as a Timberdoodle. -Ed.]


P.S. “Thank you for bring so much Cute into my life every day.”

Hey! Get Your OWN Feeder!
