    Fluffy, running Sanderlings!

    source video

    Okay Tumblr, listen, your weird conicidences lately are freaking me out.
    I know it’s likely that there is more than one one-legged Sanderling in this world, but I find it especially crazy because I, too, just recently saw and photographed these birds, and there was a hopping, one-legged guy amongst them. He truly had only one leg— he wasn’t just resting and holding the other up. We named him One-Legged Pete.

    I saw him on a beach in Connecticut.
    I’ll be painting these guys sometime this year.

    They look like they have one leg, it’s very common. I thought the same thing. But if they need to run away their other invisible leg pops out from nowhere and they scurry off. Sanderlings can hide their legs perfectly. –Jeff from because birds

    These Red-winged Blackbirds riding around on a Red-tailed Hawk. Incredible! Apparently this isn’t all that uncommon. Read more about it on the source’s website.

    They only land for a few seconds so “riding around” is a bit misleading. :-P

    I love redwing blackbirds. They’re flashy and pretty, they hang out in swampy areas, and their song sounds like a horrible mashup of “wind chimes” and “screaming kazoo.”

    I love this definition of the Red-winged Blackbird sound.

  12. partially tumblr’s fault.

    I’m bummed when a super popular gif set I created for my bird blog gets all the attribution stripped out of it, and is only viewable in certain blog themes. 

    This is why I started always watermarking all of my gifs. It’s not polite. I’m losing out on a potential new audience because of it.

    The internet is the wild, wild West.

    Samsung revealed their latest product today. Pigeon-powered Wi-Fi hotspots called “Fli-Fy”.

    “With their hollow legs, which allow for an electric charge to flow up into the micro-router, pigeons can keep the network powered by simply standing on power lines.”

    “Once we had it figured out, we were like, why hasn’t anyone else thought of this?”
