also english songbirds are cheeky buggers, I hear them singing their lovely little songs allll the time but when I try to spot them all I can see are pushy magpies, seagulls, and pigeons, none of whom are making the sounds I’m interested in listening to but all of whom are very interested in the potential food I might be carrying in my hands.
the songbirds, on the other hand, are all hidden away! where are youuuu, come out
so my housemate is studying conservational ecology and he and his course went to various nature reserves across kenya for a few weeks earlier this year and he told me today that he saw several secretary birds in person
i’m so jealous right now
the best (well, unless you’re a snake lover, I guess, lol- it’s my favorite, at least) and final secretary bird post of the night shall be up shortly! whoooo
So much variety for favorite birds! Loving all the different answers :)
for those curious as to who my favorite birds are: of course a tough choice, but long-tailed tits, saw-whet owls, mountain bluebirds, pygmy falcons, kiwis, and quetzals, definitely, off the top of my head.
eta: omfg and amethyst starlings!
as for those who think the bluebird of happiness is too grumpy to be the bluebird of happiness- he’s grumpy looking because he’s scaring away all the unhappiness!
you guys i just now realized why a ton of you have been asking me to post pictures of the “superb owl”
i was so confused until a minute ago
smh @ myself right now
anyways, your wish is my command, expect pictures of huge, magestic owls later tonight :’D
Haha do you think if I ever go here (Fat Birds Cafe) I can get a discount because of my blog title?
ENGLISH ROBINS, YOU GUYS
why did nobody warn me how lethally adorable they are in person
I saw two in person for the first time ever today at the cafe in the garden I was visiting and they were so puffy and fearless and one of them hopped closer and closer and I actually almost cried
So I’m in the UK right now for school, and I’ve been waiting eagerly for my first long-tailed tit sighting
AND IT HAPPENED TODAY, just five minutes ago!
It was so small and so perfect aaaaah
