Thank You For Flying Air Cygnus

Please locate the closest exit under each wing. In the event of a water landing, I am a flotation device.

Bok, Bok, Bok … Meow?

Ay-yup, when you’re a farmer, ya hafta put in a full day, sunup ta sundown. Ah’m up with the kittens every mornin’. (Sorry ’bout that, meant to say “chickens.”)

Goose Troop

“All right, scouts, stick with your hiking buddy and stay in formation!  (Dear, would you kick Hubert back into line?)  Now, let’s earn those merit badges!  Sound off!

“Peep, two, three, four! … Peep, two, three, four!”

Make way for goslings, Todd C.

A Different-Kind-of-Dog Fight

Well hellooooo, little birdies! Oh, do you see something you like…? Is it this delicious walnut? Too bad the tastiest treat on the planet is jusssst out of reach…

Oh my. OK, I did not foresee this seriously terrifying hopping and pecking. How about we go split-sies?

D-I-V-O-R-C-E

According to the BBC, wildlife experts were stunned to witness a rare “divorce” among a pair of swans.  The birds, which normally mate for life, returned to a Gloucestershire wildfowl sanctuary — with different partners. Sanctuary officials hope the birds will resolve their differences on an upcoming Maury Povich.

Roger Hummingbird, You’re Clear for Take-Off

It seemed Roger flapped a little too hard recently and unfortunately ended up with a broken wing. But never fear – Roger is now clear to hover next to petunias once again, thanks to the professional care of our sender-inner, K-riz.

(And the constant stream of inspirational lyricist, Mr. Mister, didn’t hurt, either.)

Bye-bye, birdie, K-riz.

The Bird Was Disturbed

Kyle was giving his oddly colorless neighbor, Lenny, a lift home after a crazy night at Go-Go-Gecko Lounge, when the sudden realization hit him. Kyle hated himself for thinking it, and he knew his cousins would be disgusted, but there was no denying it:

Lenny tasted like chicken.

Is Bird being smuggled, or snuggled, Amy T.?
