For the Birds

Here’s what I think, birds are some of the most incredible creatures ever created. They are beautiful, smart, funny and fun to watch! Here are few things you may not have known about our beautifully feathered friends.

You eat like a bird! Okay, let’s get something straight here, this is no compliment! Most birds eat half their body weight in food per day. And some young birds, they can eat their full body weight worth of seed a day. Okay, when you weigh just ounces that may not seem like much. But consider if a person did that! A 150 pound person would have to eat 75 pounds of food a day to keep up with a bird! And let’s not even talk about keeping up with that baby bird.

Bird brain. Why thank you very much! While it was once considered that birds were inferior to mammals in regards their brain, thus leading to insults such as the previous, it turns out that science has proven this to be wrong. Birds generally have quite large brains and they use them well.

So very beautiful! Hopefully you have noticed this just by the pictures on this post. Birds come in every color, a variety of sizes and shapes, they have expressive faces, and they can literally make you feel awe at their abilities. Consider this visual, an eagle is soaring high in the sky. Then after catching sight of a fish, it swoops down, snatches it out of the water, then flies away for dinner. Of course their are other visuals, but I think I’ll leave off on my descriptive writing and just let you look at some pictures and decide for yourself!

Now I could go on and on with these photos. There are so many beautiful birds! But what are your favorites? Are they exotic? colorful? or maybe just one of your backyard feeder birds? Let me know what you think!
