Technology can end up accomplishing some pretty dang cool things. It'd be very neat to see this applied to other birds' flight patterns out there. Maybe mix in some lo-fi tunes, and you've created a whole vibe.

So, this very well might've just skyrocketed to the top of the charts when it comes to our favorite cover of "Psycho Killer." The falsetto was just plain old wicked.

Twitter User Demands Drawings of Bepantsed Vulture, Gets Them

There is actually a legitimate medical reason for giving the vulture its pants, but that is buried under the undeniable spectacle of a bird wearing pants. The concept was all-consuming enough for Chappell Ellison to demand artists renderings of the panted vulture, and what came of it was, well, more vultures in pants. Nice. It's reminiscent of the time people were asked to share their art and draw a duck.

Clearly, these birds know way more about what they're doing in the realm of music than they get credit for. Can't help but wonder what the cleanup process must've been like.

That fox must've been in one deep slumber. Also though, shout out to the bird for the fearless maneuvering. Homie was clearly on a mission to gather all that necessary nesting material. Things could've shaken out very differently for the bird.

Crow Whisperer Forgets About Raw Egg In His Pocket

Crows are a bit of a trip. They definitely exhibit a notable level of intelligence, and even carry grudges. It sounds like this dude had a fragile system worked out with the crows in his vicinity. Unfortunately, his timing was off for making good on some bird tax, and he ended up paying the price. Maybe just don't stow the raw egg in your pocket next time around, man. 

A crow whisperer totally forgets about the raw egg that he put in his pocket.

Now this right here is what the internet is for. Did you wake up today thinking you'd eventually stumble upon a video showing a chicken farmer who has seemingly been possessed by an actual chicken? Nope, you probably didn't. But here you are anyways. The laughter is truly infectious.

They're clearly planning world domination. Never underestimate a couple ducks that are having a passionate conversation with one another.

Sure, most birds will wait for bread to fall and just eat it off the ground like the filthy animals they are. But this one had a decidedly more spectacular way of doing things, a method that requires much better bird-eye coordination. With interception skills like that it could play for the Ravens.

This fun Twitter thread from @Stu_Bot3000 runs a quick study on some of the world's silliest bird names. Suffice to say, we had no idea there were these kinds of bird names running amok out there. It's as if some of the folks in charge of naming these birds have some sort of vendetta against birds, because some of these names are just brutal.

Clearly, our socially aggressive Raven is bombarding the majestic snowy owl that could easily be mistaken for Hedwig, about Harry Potter's whereabouts. Some birds just refuse to take a hint. Maybe the Raven homie was lonely out there in the bitter cold.
