19 Posts That Prove Birds Are Pretty Awesome

by Elana

When I was a kid my parents brought home a bird. I don't even remember what kind of bird it was but we were all super excited about having a pet bird, until we realized that we were totally not cut out for having a pet bird. I mean, the thing never shut up. Ever. I'm sure a bird enthusiast could explain something totally logical and rational but as a kid, I thought to myself: birds suck.

Now into adulthood and thanks to the glory that is known as the Internet, I've come to learn that birds are diverse little creatures bursting with personality and totally worthy of their famed adoration. Although I will likely never keep a bird as a pet ever again, I've decided to spread the good news of birds!

1. "I saved a life today."

So I saw a woman driving with a Falcon stuck in her grill today. I ran out on to the street and flagged her down. I noticed pretty quickly that the falcon was still alive and not very happy. I called a worker from Bridge film studios where I was headed for a meeting who came out to help. He grabbed gloves and held the poor guy. We decided the best choice was to cut the bird out. The lady who owned the car was ok with it. The bird lives! A Wildlife controller was on the way so we didn't release it. They wanted to make sure it wasn't injured too badly before letting it go. Crazy morning...
