For @elodieunderglass​ -
A colleague of mine snapped these shots of a leucistic Anna’s Hummingbird who has been flittering around a provincial park up here for a few weeks. Thought of your Catalogue of Such Beasts, obviously. S/he’s actually decently camouflaged for these parts in early spring!

Everyone knows that some owls have “tufts” on their heads. But did you know there is actually a name for these tufts?

They are called “Plumicorns”, from the Latin words meaning “feather horn”. Not all owls have them, and their purpose is still debated. They are usually kept flat on the birds head. Owls are also not the only birds to possess Plumicorns.
(if you can identify every species shown here you win a prize)

What Humans Have Wrought upon the innocent, unsuspecting Rock Dove, Columba livia, (aka has the domestic pigeon gone Too Far? Yes.):

This is the Holle Cropper. I had to check google to make sure the first photo I saw wasn't just a weird pose. Nope, turns out they're ALL like this.
Tumblr media
look into those eyes and tell me aachen lacquer shield owl pigeon is not just waiting to avenge itself on its creators. seriously, why do we keep making perfectly good animals brachycephalic?
Tumblr media
are we like... totally sure there's a bird still in the Jacobin???? are we positive?
Tumblr media
the Königsberg Colour-head Tumbler was a mistake
Tumblr media
okay, ALL fancy pigeons, especially the English Magpie, are going to kill god, and we are god
Tumblr media
the Zitterhall: it got worse
Tumblr media
just to prove they can squish as WELL as stretch: the Modena.

the Reverse-Wing Pouter: that's.... that's not where wings go 😰

the Scandaroon, designed by Salvador Dalí

and finally, this poorly-assembled fucker is called the Pygmy Pouter.
I think our selective breeding privileges ought to be revoked, collectively, as a species. We've done enough.

I remember hearing in a video about training birds that not all birds can actually recognize the whole human body as one being, and only see your head as being "you." In case you needed a reason to make your birds' humansonas even weirder.
Was it about budgies? I’m sort of skeptical that there are birds that cannot recognize the human body as being part of a coherent animal (like ... birds can still see you when you’re far away), but to be fair, domestic life does weird things to the avian psyche. I think it’s more likely that birds just have different opinions about various human body parts (i.e. face: cute! hands: scary! feet: hey baby)

Alright! As requested (by 2 whole people) the original and prints of this piece are now available in my shop! I'm also working on another version of this since it's not my favorite.
Etsy shop link.
