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! :)

These are my cockatiels Hero and Bernie. I adopted them both from different owners and they were both in a sense abused. Bernie, when I first got him a year ago was underweight and very aggressive. Hero, I got from a pet shop where his owner abandoned him. He’s bald on the top of his head and was only slightly underweight but on a seed diet because of the petstore. Neither of them had ever really been hand trained and liked to bite. They both also suffered from something we call learned helplessness. Since I got them I’ve given them a good home where they receive more love and attention then even I do. They’re both really healthy now and love to play with all of their nice new toys and whatever they can manage to pick up.
