  1. Brian Jacques’ Spirit Lives on, Here is a Weasel Riding a Woodpecker

    On our way to steal your badger treasure.

    Obviously this is more of a Garry Kilworth situation, but something about that weasel just screams Ferahgo the Assassin to me. If I squint I swear I can make out a tiny mace and chain.

Science has a solution for you: make friends with birds.

    Talk about surfin' safari!

    Filmed at the Kruger National Park in South Africa, this heron is having a grand old time. We can't be sure, but we think the hippo was having a bit of fun too. If you want to have some fun, try starting the video below first and playing both at the same time.

  6. New Study Closes the Evolutionary Gap Between Dinosaurs and Birds

    Hold onto your butts.

    Science has known for a while that birds and dinosaurs are evolutionarily linked, but it's been difficult to establish a direct connection between today's birds and their giant, people-hungry ancestors. Now, a new study uses the existing fossil record and several recent finds of feathered dinosaurs to draw a direct connection, so now we know how they flocked this way.

  7. Swallows Opening Doors Now, Birdemic Is Upon Us

    If they learn to use a hotel key card we are done for.

    A group of swallows was already living in this parking garage in Victoria, Canada, when automatic doors were installed, but judging from Grant Hughes' footage the birds adapted to the automatic sensors remarkably fast. It's always sad to see animals cope with loss of their environment, but damn, these little guys sure showed us!

  10. Testosterone in Part of a Bird’s Brain Makes Them Sing More, but Doesn’t Help Them Mate Successfully

    It basically turns them into guys who hit on everyone with cheesy pickup lines.

    Male canaries woo potential mates with song, and a new study shows that delivering testosterone to one part of the bird's brain increases the frequency with which the bird sings, but doesn't improve how well they sing. They can basically talk to women, but don't necessarily know what to say.
