Revenge of the birb.

Large bird attacks and kills its fallen owner in Florida

ALACHUA, Fla. (AP) — A large, flightless bird native to Australia and New Guinea attacked and killed its owner when the man fell on his property in Florida, authorities said Saturday. ...

… a cassowary killed the man Friday on the property near Gainesville, likely using its long claws. The victim, whose name was not released, was apparently breeding the birds, state wildlife officials said. ...

… The San Diego Zoo's website calls cassowaries the world's most dangerous bird with a four-inch, dagger-like claw on each foot.

"The cassowary can slice open any predator or potential threat with a single swift kick. Powerful legs help the cassowary run up to 31 miles per hour (50 kph) through the dense forest underbrush," the website says. ...

I decided to risk putting this here. If it's too much for the thread, a mod can move it.

A number of sites around the UK are favoured by Peregrine Falcons at nesting time.
These tend to be the spires/towers of cathedrals and churches and ledges on other tall buildings.
The County Council HQ in Aylesbury has had Peregrines nest there for several years but unfortunately the webcams are not working.
I had the good luck to see one 'in the flesh' last year over the town centre and I was surprised at the size of it. I had assumed that they were Sparrowhawk size.

However, the webcam is working at Chichester Cathedral in Sussex and is worth a look.

Possession is nine-tenths of the law is not a legal principle which troubles the average gull.
Enjoying your chips, grease burger or other edible health hazard on the beach runs the risk of it being stolen by a sea bird.

Winnie the bald eagle and her handler Kyle Smaldon patrol the seafront at Lyme Regis in a bid to stop seagulls pinching tourists’ chips.
The local council is deploying Winnie and fellow bird of prey Kojak throughout the Easter weekend and so far the troublesome gulls seem to be keeping their distance.

Baby birbs are the least cute of all types of animals.

It's amazing how these two have grown in three weeks since hatching. They are a little smaller than footballs now. They have pin feathers - you can see all those spikes growing out of them, those will become more srs feathers and replace the fluff they have now.



And what I learned is, these birbs knew upon hatching how to take a shit outside the nest. Built-in behavior, they squat, bend over like they're mooning ya, and SQUIRT right over the edge.
