Hummingbirds weight about as much as a penny and fly hundreds of miles each year during migration. Watch as this tiny female Anna’s Hummingbird creates a nest for its young. It steals spider silk fibers, moss, small leaves, and other materials to strengthen the cup that it sits in.
Scientists set up a row of super-sensitive microphones and had various birds fly above them to record the sound created by their flapping. Owls are known for their silent flying abilities. See how they compare to other birds in this fascinating video.
Experience “Horse Riding Falconry” from the back of a majestic Golden Eagle. People of Mongolia use these beautiful birds to hunt on the steppes of Western Mongolia in the Atlai Mountains.
Recently, I had the privilege of participating in a release of three Western Gulls that we helped rehabilitate at International Bird Rescue in San Pedro, CA.
We frequently receive injured or sick gulls and other aquatic birds at the rehab center. The veterinary staff does their best to plan a path to wellness for these birds.
Brian and I went to the park to feed California Gulls and Red-winged Blackbirds so I could record them flying and eating in slow motion. It looks awesome. Check it out!
