Name That Tune!

This little cockatiel can. (It’s “My Neighbor Totoro.”) Not only can he name it, he can sing it! Take it away, little buddy.

Sweet Tweets

When there’s apples being offered, Lorikeets are very patient, polite and proper.

But there’s always one who wants to get a head.

“Here are some pictures of me feeding some lorikeets with an apple on my balcony. They are all lined up, and waiting their turn patiently. One even sat on my head.” -Risha S.

So, this is Smudge. Hi Smudge! Smudge is a little owl. No, not a little owl, a Little Owl.

“I met Smudge the Little Owl at Loch Lomond Bird Sanctuary in Scotland. She is owned by the centre and was hand reared from only 5 weeks old. This has resulted in her friendly nature believing she is human. It is common for little owls of this breed to become aggressive after 1 year old but Smudge is now 4 and still adores cuddles, kisses and attention from visitors.” -Hazel W.

Duck, Duck…

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSE!

Little Orphan Eggie

In over 40 years of rescuing our feathered friends around the world, this was one of the most anticipated arrivals of all for International Bird Rescue. A severely injured mama Mallard was brought in to their San Francisco Bay Wildlife Hospital and found to have a single egg. Mama could not be saved but the veterinary staff were able to save her one egg. 26 days later, after waiting and wondering, a perfect mallard duckling hatched!

Read the entire orphaned duckling’s awesome story at International Bird Rescue. “Hey there, thought I’d send our latest Cute Overload submission! This Mallard Duckling in hot pursuit of a dragonfly is by Kim Taylor, our recent Photographers in Focus honoree (who gives permission for the photo to be used.)” -Andrew H.

Suddenly, Penguins in Dashikis

To welcome a delegation of African leaders to Japan, the Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise park held a parade of penguins of African origin dressed in colorful tunics. So far, there’s no word if they’ll be coming to America.

What’s So Funny, Ya Birdbrain?

Someone or something is tickling the funny bone of this fine feathered friend. If they HAVE a funny bone in there, of course.

UPDATE: This fellow’s name is “Polo.” See more of MyFirstAvailableName’s videos here. Thanks to DP&F.

Not In Our Park You Don’t!

Gladys, dear, I think these people have no bread crumbs. Oh, the calamity.
Tsk, tsk. Gabby, we can’t even harass them in our own park anymore without getting cheated. I think it’s scandalous.
Let’s give them an eye full, Gladys.
That’s the spirit, Gabby. Harrumph!

“OK – this came about from a walk in a local park, Heather Farm, in Walnut Creek, California. Anyway, they were quite disgruntled that we had no treats for them, and gave us an eye full.” -Barb P. Photo by Paul P.
