The bald eagle is one of the most majestic creatures to grace our Earth, a beautiful bird that humankind has come to interpret as a symbol of freedom and defiance. According to Defenders Of Wildlife, there are some 70,000 bald eagles left in North America, which is the happy ending to a remarkable recovery story that…
Deadline acquisition Yoenis Cespedes’s eighth-inning home run put the finishing touches on the Mets’ 3-0 win over the Rockies last night, a victory that put them 3.5 games up in the NL East. It was Cespedes’s first homer as a Met, and he says it’s all about his neon tribute to a little avian gatecrasher.
A raven, or possibly some disguised trickster god, made a run at Henrik Stenson’s tee shot on 14 at the British Open today. It failed to either swallow the ball or pick it up and drop it directly into the hole:
There aren’t many good sports highlights for you today, so here’s a dorky bird knocking a soccer ball into a small goal. The bird also dances.
Let's take a little stroll down memory lane, back to the halcyon summer days of 2010, when Kings of Leon cancelled a show in St. Louis after just five songs because a bird shit in the bassist's mouth. Yes, Jared Followill (seen above, in much happier times) got Hot Carled by a pigeon.
The entire Western seaboard is being evacuated today, after an NHL webcam captured what appears to be an enormous bird the size of a football field interrupting the rink construction for Saturday's Kings-Sharks game. It is too late for humanity; surely the black death shall devour us all. Should the coal-winged…
We became familiar with Taima earlier this year when she decided to go hang out with some fans. Today the Seahawks' live bird mascot "helped" CBS Sports reporter Dana Jacobson while she delivered a four-minute live shot from CenturyLink Field. The bird very early on tried to escape, but a handler restored the hawk…
Taima the Augur hawk didn't feel like following her usual flight around the stadium before today's Giants-Seahawks game. She took a detour and landed on a Seahawks fan, because she's a hawk and can do whatever she wants. Taima could have picked a closer seat for the game, though.
These are the highlights of Melbourne Victory's 2-0 win over Wellington Phoenix. More impressive than either goal scored is that the match continued on in the middle of a veritable bird storm, with dozens of gulls just walking on or flitting about the field and players like they owned the place.
For the record, this is not some cool shit to do while at a football game. It's some gross shit to do while anywhere on earth.
One of the more distinguishing features of the new Vikings stadium, set to open in 2016, is the huge glass exterior. But birds, who are stupid, would not call that a selling point. They would call it a dying point.
Tawny just did you dirty, Cleveland. You provide a home for her in the Cleveland Zoo, and this is how she repays you.
A trio of pigeons hung out in the infield of Tropicana Field during tonight's Royals-Rays game. They thought they owned the place, strutting around and bobbing their heads with no regard for the baseball going on.
Another pitcher has joined the Randy Johnson Club of Hitting Birds With Pitches.
This mockingbird doesn't care about the size of that hawk, or that it could shred the twerp up in five seconds if it wanted to. The bird version of Cortland Finnegan just keeps agitating its much larger "friend."
Golf Channel cameras caught a bird taking an enormous shit on the course during the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio earlier today. This is video of that bird shitting, with some spliced in narration provided by famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough.
Jimmy Walker's shot on the 17th hole during the second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational appeared to have deflected off a bird gliding over the course. But because he didn't call "bird" before the shot, he got docked another stroke. Sorry, it's in the rules.
The osprey, Pandion haliaetus, is a bird of character. The ancient poets knew this, and the Maryland Transportation Authority is discovering it the hard way. Last week, a pair of ospreys decided to build their nest on a platform overlooking the approach to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, where the MDTA keeps a traffic…
Dwyane Wade doesn't like birds, so sometimes he sits outside his house and yells at birds. Stupid birds.
