They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. They also say "a

When you watch this video you will wonder if you can find anything this cute ever again in your life.  Then, if you're like me, you'll want to immediately watch Happy Feet.

This little owl is sooooooo cute.  I want to give him (her?) some rubbins.

I have a friend that is really infatuated with his car.  He is constantly wiping off dirt, cleaning the seats, meticulously parking it (to the point of obsession--he lines it up with a specific point in of a chain-link fence).  Is he OCD?  Yep.  And I suspect that if he could, he would react the same way that this little lovebird does when someone tries to touch her car...

Something has grabbed the attention of the tiny parrots.  But what is it?

We had a toucan when I was a kid.  Some jacka** had shot it.  We had a neighbor that was a vet, and with him in tow my Dad and I went and captured the injured bird.  We nursed it back to health and eventually sold it to an exotic animal store for breeding.

The main thing that I remember about the toucan (that we "cleverly" named "Tooey") was that it liked to bite us.  A lot.

Humans have been watching cormorants for centuries along coastal regions all over the world. In all that time they were known for their exceptional fishing skills -- so much so that people in Japan, China, and Macedonia have used cormorants as tools for fishing for nearly as long. It is no wonder that scientists studying cormorants were shocked when they observed the birds engaging in cannibalism.
