Awesome Birds

Penguins vs. Iceberg

Penguins vs. Iceberg

A flock of gentoo penguins does their best to make the vertical leap from the water onto the tricky surface of a huge iceberg in Antarctica – we had no idea they could spring out of the water like that.

Paper Airplane vs. Birds

Paper Airplane vs. Birds

A guy drops a paper airplane from the 18th floor of a building, and as it makes its lengthy descent, something unexpected happens. We can only assume the birds of prey thought it was lunch.

This Penguin is a Jerk

This Penguin is a Jerk

We used to think that penguins were the cutest creatures. Then we were reminded they have a dark side too, as is demonstrated by the little bugger on the left and his evil ways.

Lions > Heron

Lions > Heron

Bird lovers look away. There’s a reason they keep the bird pavilion separate from the lion habitat at the zoo, as is evidenced by this footage of a heron who ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Bird Feeds Dog Noodles

Bird Feeds Dog Noodles

We’re not sure why this bird is feeding noodles to this dog, but maybe it thinks it’s giving worms to its younglings. Either way, somebody needs to train its owner to turn their cellphone sideways.

Kung Fu Rooster vs. Black Cat

Kung Fu Rooster vs. Black Cat

Despite their size, cats are usually seen getting the upper hand. But put kitty up against this fluffy rooster, and the tables are suddenly turned. Also, proof positive that a good soundtrack is everything.

Owl Hunting Practice

Owl Hunting Practice

Never mind dogs who are music lovers or cats pouncing on each other WWE style; owls need love (and video face time) too. This little guy decides to get in some hunting practice. (Thanks zero!)

RC Ornithopter

RC Ornithopter

Thanks to Youtuber RobscoRC for sharing his friend Robert’s first flight of an original Sean Kinkade (SK) Park Hawk with us. Sure, it’s no Smartbird but still pretty awesome for something from 1993.

Penguin Fetch

Penguin Fetch

Dogs may think they have cornered the market on fetching stuff, but they might face some stiff, winged competition – assuming penguins some day become popular house pets.

Bluegrass Bird

Bluegrass Bird

In the midst of a live performance of Mordecai, bluegrass singer Josh Williams is joined by a flying friend who decides his guitar would make a pretty nice birdhouse. At least it wasn’t this guy.

Cranes Over Venice

Cranes Over Venice

We’re not sure how BBC’s Earthflight managed to get so close to these cranes as they flew over Venice, Italy, but the footage captured is incredible – not just of the birds, but of their surroundings.

Moonwalking Bird

Moonwalking Bird

Watching nature at its most merciless can be fun, but it’s nice to see that animals can be more suave than savage. Watch as the manakin bird proves that ladies can’t resist the moonwalk.

Murmuration

Murmuration

Behold the magic, beauty and poetry that nature surrounds us all with in this video, which shows a chance encounter and shared moment between two humans and a collection of starlings. (Thanks Raz!)

Go, Speed Sea Gull, Go!

Go, Speed Sea Gull, Go!

This 2007 video may feature Formula Vee racer Robbie Allen somersaulting his vehicle in a crash, but we bet that’s the second reason you rewind it for a better look. Too bad it was just the nose.

Criminal Penguins

Criminal Penguins

Penguins are known for being charming, but we had no idea Chilly Willy could be so devious too. This particular guy goes around stealing rocks from the nests of other birds while they’re not looking.

When Penguins Attack

When Penguins Attack

Penguins are so adorable, aren’t they? What this guy doesn’t realize when he approaches this particular penguin is more likely related to Oswald Cobblepot than to Happy Feet.

Bird vs. Escalator

Bird vs. Escalator

So here we have just your everyday footage of a bird… going for a walk… on an escalator. Sure, it looks like he’s doing it all wrong, but he’s actually just too cheap to pay for a gym membership.

Pigeons, Fight!

Pigeons, Fight!

We’ve seen all sorts of fights with all sorts of weapons, but never any so unusual (and feather-filled) as this Russian brawl, punctuated with what can only be described as Angry Birds IRL.

Where’d Everyone Go?

Where’d Everyone Go?

A bunch of penguins pop by for a visit, when they hear it’s feeding time and head for the pond. At least most of them do. Somebody, take that little dude under their wing and show him the ropes.

Unshakeable

Unshakeable

This bird my be small, but he has an iron will (and claws of steel), hanging on to this moving windshield wiper like a champ. He may not look like he is, but perhaps he’s related to this guy.

Orphaned Screech Owls

Orphaned Screech Owls

Despite their rep of being (angry?) predatory birds, these orphaned Screech Owls don’t seem that way. They’re being cared for by humans until they’re old enough to be released back into the wild.

Man vs. Turkey

Man vs. Turkey

Guess who wins? We’re surprised the idiot in this video didn’t end up with his eyeballs pecked out by the victim of his provocation. The moral of this story: Never ruffle a turkey’s feathers.

Seagull vs. GoPro

Seagull vs. GoPro

The guy who uploaded this clip claims a seagull stole his GoPro camera while visiting France, and he had to climb a castle wall to get it back. Real or fake, the flying effect looks pretty convincing to us.

Balancing Your Budgie

Balancing Your Budgie

Ah, it’s springtime and love is in the air. This yellow budgie is in love with a yellow… tennis ball. The little bird just loves to roll around atop his new-found spherical friend – and peck at it.

Penguins vs. Airplanes

Penguins vs. Airplanes

There’s a rumor that planes flying over the heads of penguins makes them fall over and unable to right themselves, causing mass casualties. Russia Today’s reporters get to the bottom the story.

The Great Feast

The Great Feast

Blooming planktons are a feast for shoals of herring. The gathering creates a feast for seafaring birds, who gang up on the herring, pinning them from above and below. The – ohmygod.
