From Iwokrama to Atta

10,000 Birds

On a high after waking up in Guyana’s wild interior for the first time – with a spectacular morning of birding already under our belts – we resumed our southerly journey with full bellies. As difficult as it was to leave Iwokrama behind, we knew that we’d be back eventually. The road through the interior was as it was the day before; an endless, undulating swath of red dirt bordered by dense forest on either side.

Cross River Gorilla Facts, Habitat, Diet, Scientific Name, Population & Predators

Reddit Animals

A subspecies of the western gorilla , the cross-river gorilla is known by its scientific name, Gorilla diehli. Though they are getting harder to find, Paul Matschie named the cross-river gorilla a new species in 1904. These gorillas have black or brownish-gray fur. The face, hands, and feet don’t have any fur at all, though. They have cone-shaped heads, and a scarlet crest sits atop them.

Creepin’ on Walls in Bonn

10,000 Birds

As I noted in my last post, I recently found out that a Wallcreeper had been discovered already in December just outside Bonn, conveniently a 10 minute bike ride from my home (plus a ferry crossing). Although the bird was found a while ago, it had still been seen the day before I went to check out the site with my mother (not a birder but interested in birds), who, in an unlikely coincidence, came across this species a few days earlier when looking through my bird guide and decided that she woul

When is a Vulture Not a Vulture?

10,000 Birds

I think we don’t give vultures all the love they deserve. When you consider all the nasty stuff they uncomplainingly dispose of, and what the world might look like if they didn’t, it seems we could be more grateful. I, however, am a fan of vultures. I have been lucky enough to get close views of two massive Old World Vulture species, the Eurasian Griffon and the Egyptian Vulture.

I feel like I need to rat myself out

Reddit Animals

In 2009 I met my best friend. She was a black cat about 2-3 years old. She had ran into someone’s house when it was raining one night and he took care of her until eventually he had a baby and the baby was allergic- so she was just confined to a room. She moved from house to house but no one was treating her the way she deserved. She really wanted a one on one relationship- so I was a young man and it was perfect.

Is this a tortoise?

Was on a walk and saw this as i walked past. It looks like wood/a broken football or something. I’m in England, so i assume that it’s definitely not wild? That’s if it is a tortoise. I’m thinking that if it is, it’s probably been abandoned and died.

Found this bird, need help taking care of it (see below)

Reddit Animals

I found this bird outside my house, it seemed like it couldn’t fly or walk anymore, so I took it to the vet. It’s a sea bird, not a seagull, I think it might be a Caspian Gull. Turns out it’s fine, but has diarrhea. Vet suggested I feed it with vitamins for a week, but my issue is it can’t even get up, and if it tries then it struggles then falls. I’ve only had it for a day, but he won’t eat either.

Proper way to go about this?

So we recently had a new neighbor move in (couple weeks ago maybe longer) and their dog is driving me NUTS. It’s never inside, even with the -20 to -30° temps a couple weeks ago. It barks literally nonstop all damn day. It’s not on a lead or leash of any kind and when I take MY dog out to go to the bathroom it tries to run over and I have to vault over the porch and chase it off.

Bird identification

Reddit Animals

A bird recently started coming to my balcony and sleeping there, jumping on the railings, and isn't really scared of people. It's perhaps a bit bigger than my fist, and still has some fluff, almost like baby feathers. It seems to have a black back, white belly and grey chest. Can anyone help identify this bird? I'm in Hong Kong. Why would it even be on my balcony every night away?
