You’d think that these skinny little birds would have no chance against deadly gaze (and jaws) of this alligator, but it turns out theses sandhill cranes have no problem telling this gator to stay off their turf.
A bird with aviophobia does everything he can to avoid the trip South for the winter. A brilliant short film created by Conor Finnegan using live-action puppetry – and not one bit of stop motion. (Thanks Kenny!)
It’s a bird, it’s a bike, it’s… Gee Atherton, getting chased by a peregrine falcon while racing down a mountain doing what he does best. Who is the victor? Take a wild guess. Birds-eye view here. (Thanks Chris!)
Dear ducks… if you must cross the road, we suggest doing it on a quiet country byway, and not in the middle of an active IndyCar practice round. Thanks mostly to the skill of the drivers, momma and babies came out unscathed.
Ed Carpenter’s Pigeon Light is a whimsical take on your favorite urban bird – “the rat with wings” as we call it. At least this one won’t crap on your head. Available in various natural and unnatural colors.
