    Note: Larger version HERE in case you ever wondered if a hummingbird's stare can steal your soul (it can). This is the macro shot of a Green-Crowned Brilliant Hummingbird's face taken by photographer Chris Morgan while on vacation at the Bosque De Paz biological reserve in Cos... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Pumzilla's pet cockatiel Twinkie whistling the Andy Griffith theme song to his friend the stuffed turtle. It made me happy. Plus made me wish I could whistle. It also made me wish I had a turtle friend to sing to. I like tuttles. "Wait -- are yo... / Continue →

    This is a video of swallows that have learned to use a motion-detecting door at the University of Victoria's bike-parking garage so they can gain access to their nests inside (which they made before the doors were installed). For reference, that makes them smarter than the 75%... / Continue →

    This is a video of everybody's favorite nature documentary host David Attenborough narrating a women's Olympic curling match. You know, David Attenborough might actually have my favorite voice of all time. It's so relaxing. Like, if he read me a bedtime story before I KNOW I... / Continue →

    This is a video of a crow (a member of the Corvus genus, which includes ravens) solving a complex 8-step puzzle in order to grab himself a treat. Apparently members of the Corvus genus are particularly smart, which I already knew because of that Edgar Allen Poe poem where the ... / Continue →

    This is a godawful quality video (after the jump) of an African Tigerfish (above) leaping out of the water to catch a bird mid-flight. Sucks to be that bird. Of course, it shouldn't have been flying so close to the surface in the first place. THAT'S WATER DUMMY, YOU DON'T BE... / Continue →
