Why don't airlines offer "animal-friendly" flights so that customers, who are willing to pay for an extra ticket for their furry, feathered, and/or scaled friends, don't have to play this "support animal" game? Personally, I was not willing to pay the extra $80 when I once smuggled a pair of Bengalese Finches aboard a Detroit-Phoenix-San Diego flight. #BirdsFlyFree! #TrueStory

I nominate Little Man, the Crimson-bellied Conure co-star of I, Tonya , for best supporting actor! And for the film, #TwoAlulaeUp!!! Add LaVona Golden a.k.a. Tonya Harding's mom to the list of #UnlikelyAviculturists.

This weary, feathered migrant was not wary of the sailors of Team AkzoNobel, and Ross Monson was having a great hair day! While doubtful that this nameless Little Brown Job intended to upstage the long-lived and matronly Wisdom, the Albatross, the Volvo Ocean Race now has an alternative avian inspiration for a mascot. Is that a Reed Warbler? Is het een kleine karekiet? (Raw video clip: http://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/raw/1096.html)

Yes, even birds love themselves (but I'm not naming names in my flock)! I just want to be an avian sexologist when I grow up. See also: https://drthomasprice.wordpress.com/masturbation-in-birds/

#SignOfTheTimes "Originally, there was speculation that the bird on top could be protecting its mate, but Dianna Flynt from the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey said that couldn't be further from the truth. ..."

Ducklings imprinted on a pair of identical objects exhibited preference for identical objects over the non-identical object pair when offered a choice; those first exposed to non-identical objects, preferred non-identical stimuli over the identical pair. Same difference?
