mollybee93: When I went on a study abroad in Panama, we ran into several of these guys in the rainforest. It’s called The Great Tinamou. Basically looks like a mourning dove inflated like a balloon. I’ve always loved fat birds and this has been one of the best fat birds I’ve ever seen. So glad there is a whole blog dedicated to them <3
this is so great and I am so glad you have submitted this picture ahhh
catoncoals: Lost in the Camas/Washougal Washington area. REWARD!
Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection has a family of Peregrine Falcons living on their roof! The falcon cam is quite active right now with four very fluffy babies. Enjoy!
Mod: omgggg they’re so fluffy I can’t handle it! I want to squish them!!
Ashley: I crocheted some baby budgies :) There is a pattern at the above link if anyone would like to make their own!
Here is a link to the imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/W4mG3#2

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.
Western Screech Owl
You may notice her eye is a little off - that’s because she had an accident that resulted in a head injury. She was unable to be released back into the wild, but she’s being well cared for in captivity and used in educational programs.
jadedsketch: Hi! This is a photoshopped image of my linnie, Petri, who is dressed for the upcoming SuperBowl. I’ve been meaning to submit pictures of Petri forever, as I am biased and believe him to be the cutest fat bird.
Mod: He’s sure a cutie! :)
