February 24, 2014 - White-winged Fairywren (Malurus leucopterus)
The White-winged Fairywren is native to most of Central Australia. Some males develop bright blue plumage during breeding season. Younger birds, usually of the same family group, assist with the care of chicks.

A follower just alerted me to the existence of this blog and I’m so glad they did! This is one of the cutest and most informative little bird blogs I’ve ever seen and the art is so amazing! It’s a pretty new blog, from the looks of it, but I can tell it’s going places. Each illustration is cuter than the next- definitely worth a look and a follow! :)

DONATIONS DESPERATELY NEEDED TO HELP REHABILITATE BIRDS OF PREY. THE WOMAN RUNNING THIS PROJECT RECEIVES NO FUNDS AND CONTRIBUTES THOUSANDS OF HER OWN.

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/eagle-scout-raptor-cage-project

You can donate here to Letitia’s specific project regarding a cage that is being built to help rehabilitate birds of prey. She receives no funding and rehabilitates these birds on her own time and money. 

Even if the $500 goal is reached, please keep donating because as you can see, the cage alone will cost $1200, and funding is always needed.

She is crucially in need of donations of money or meat. So if you live near Carencro, LA, they can use unseasoned chicken, beef, deer, squirrel, rabbit, etc., or gift cards. The birds are eating over 30 mice a night. She receives hundreds of birds a year and 50% are injured or orphaned due to human impact. 

Please reblog if you can’t help.

I think I’m cracking up, today I thought I saw a really large fluffy snowy owl sitting on top of one of the yellow dumpsters on my college campus but it was just an exceptionally large owl-shaped speckled rock.

There was a turkey on our neighbors roof today and my house mate took a video.  Needless to say I was super surprised.

I’m just going through some of my oldest likes and this video from two years ago is still hilarious. “NO DON’T GO! Oh it just pooped.”

niightwing: i met this little cutie on my way to work today! and im just wondering do you know what kind of bird this is uvu?
eeeee what a sweetie! :D looks like he might be a goldcrest or some other kind of crest/kinglet!
ETA: Several followers have confirmed that this is a yellow-rumped warbler! Thanks guys. Also couple of people have noted that this little birdy might be ill if it’s letting you touch it, so it’s good to inform your local rehab center.
