We Don’t Want Any

Look, I’m not telling you again, I don’t want to buy your magazines, or sign your petition, or try your free bird seed samples, and definitely don’t want to hear about the true spiritual path to omniversal meta-consciousness…


Wait, go back one…

Penguin Twin Powers, Activate!

Whenever there is danger, mild-mannered Bert and Myrtle touch beaks to become the Penguin Twins, whose superpower consists mainly of swimming around and eating herring.

What is the Secret to Loff Everlasting?

Primping and combing and fluffing and spiffing him up and letting him wear his favorite old gray sweater with the patches on the elbows.

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.

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

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!

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.
