    Oh the shoebill wasn't trying to eat the duck. It was simply picking it up and tossing it aside, because the duck was impeding its desired path, and to the shoebill, might makes right.

    Pelicans, that's the bird what'll try to eat anything it can put in its mouth.

    The duck was going to use the mortgage to invest in a time share.
    Shoebill is a hero.

    It's the duck's expression that makes it, really.

    Brown-headed nuthatches being reintroduced to Missouri where they had been missing for around a century.

    If you don't know what they are, here's a video of 'em being cute and squeaky:

    I walked around the corner of my house and accidentally stepped between these cuties and their mother.

    Their mother was quite frantic, but I managed to snap this picture before they all scampered away.

    There's a whole lot of hummingbirds here where we're camping and day before yesterday I found a hummingbird nest with two tiny little eggs in it.

    That's awesome! Hummingbird nests are notoriously hard to find because they're tiny and hummingbirds fly so fast that most people only see them where they're feeding, which can be pretty far away from where they're nesting.

    The lack of anthropogenic noise pollution in 2020 resulted in a scientifically measurable improvement in the quality of birdsong, as birds didn't have to alter their pitch as much to fight the noise of traffic.

    https://www.inverse.com/science/coronavirus-changes-bird-song
    It turns out the decrease in human-produced noise, traffic in particular, is showing up in the songs of sparrows.

    Songbirds in the Bay Area produced higher-quality songs during spring 2020 compared with previous years, a new study finds.

    Because we are all staying home, ambient noise levels in 2020 are consistent with those of the mid-1950s. In turn, this quietening puts less pressure on birds and other animals that depend on their song for survival.

    When birds have to compete with manmade noise, they sing at a higher frequency. Doing so carries their song further — but it also lowers its quality, which is measured by the song's amplitude.

    tl;dr - Birdsong sounded better in 2020 because everyone stayed home.

    I get what they're saying, but calling that 'quality' is at best nebulous and at worst extremely sensational.

    This is the neighborhood's resident duck couple.

    There's a big park and lake nearby but they seem to prefer the more urban environment an spend a lot of the time in the courtyards of the building blocks here.

    Just a bunch of birdsong hipsters who preferred their earlier work before they moved to the city to make it big
