Feathered fact: The original hawk that played Mordecai in the "Royal Tenenbaums" (2001) was not only kidnapped, but held for ransom. Director Wes Anderson decided to use a second hawk. The new bird looked differently and it was addressed in the Oscar-nominated script thusly:

Richie: See now he has more white feathers on his neck.
Margot: I wonder what happened to him.
Richie: I don’t know. Sometimes if a person has a traumatic experience their hair turns white.
Margot: Well, I’m sure he’ll get over it.

National Day & World Calendar (@itsadayreally)

Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming...love a beautiful day! 🌞🌻🐦Another trending day on the calendar is World Sparrow Day, which actually raises awareness to the threats to the sparrow population like loss of habitat and lack of food. A wild house sparrow can live to be over 13 years! 🐦🐦🐦 #worldsparrowday

Norbil Becerra once knew only one way to make a living: cutting down trees for illegal logging companies in the Peruvian Amazon, a 12-hour walk from his family in Peru’s northeastern San Martín region.
.
Now, Becerra provides for his wife and three children in a way that keeps Peru’s trees standing.
.
“I know that my future and my family’s future depend on my conservation decisions,” Becerra said from the wooden observation platform he built with his own hands, overlooking a dozen bird feeders and an array of bright flowers and plants.
.
His new livelihood: hummingbirds. For more on this uplifting story, visit http://ci-intl.org/2jecV3A #NationalBirdDay #bird #hummingbird #peru #conservation #ecotourism #nature

Parco Natura Viva (@parconaturaviva)

L’ara militare è uno dei pappagalli maggiormente a rischio di estinzione. Il suo piumaggio prevalentemente verde assomiglia ad un’uniforme militare, da cui il nome di questa ara.

Military macaws are one of the most endangered parrot species. They owe the name to their mainly green plumage, resembling a military uniform.

National Geographic Picture of the Day (from January 2017): WE HAVE LIFTOFF Along the Zambezi River in northern Namibia, a giant flock of southern carmine bee-eaters (Merops nubicoides) scatters into the air. According to Your Shot photographer Jason Boswell, these birds were taking off as a group of bird ringers attempted to ring a few hundred of them to gather more information on where they go when they leave these breeding grounds. Today is National Bird Day in the United States; the holiday coincides with the Christmas Bird Count, a citizen-led project to take stock of the health of the country’s birds. #nationalgeographic #pictureoftheday #yourshot #jasonboswell #zambesiriver #namibia #nationalbirdday #christmasbirdcount

Parco Natura Viva (@parconaturaviva)

Al Parco sono presenti due coppie di Ara Macao, riconoscibili dal colore delle loro ali, che a differenza dell’Ara dalle ali verdi, sono gialle e blu.
I pappagalli Ara, oltre che particolarmente belli per i loro colori, sono anche molto intelligenti.

There are two couples of Scarlet macaw at Parco Natura Viva, recognizable by the color of their wings, which unlike the Red-and-green macaw, are yellow and blue.
The parrots Ara, as well as particularly attractive for their colors, are also very intelligent.
