Live Feed Bird Feeder Lets Your Cats Stream Birds Outside Your Window
Designed to resemble a live-streamed YouTube video, the $30 Live Feed Bird Feeder from Fred sticks to a window via suction cups and provides an analog display of the birds outside. Of course, if you prefer a digital display you can always set up a webcam, close the blinds, and watch from your computer, you technological recluse, you.

These Bird-Like Robotic Legs Can Perch And Grasp Things With Its Feet
Inspired by the legs and feet of a peregrine falcon, engineers at Stanford University’s Cutkosky Lab have developed a set of SNAG (“stereotyped nature-inspired aerial grasper”) robotic legs that can perch on different sized branches and grasp objects in a manner similar to the bird of prey.

This Life-Size Bubo the Owl Figure from Clash of the Titans is Kraken Battle Ready
Everyone needs a faithful companion, and Perseus really lucked out in Clash of the Titans when Athena refused Zeus’s request to send the hero her own pet owl, instead offering a brass-and-iron version of Bubo she had Hephaestus construct.

Cleverly shaped like the sort of closed-circuit surveillance camera you might see on the side of a building, Instructables user JoopB1 has outlined step-by-step instructions for how to build your own fake security camera birdhouse out of scrap wood (in this case leftover 12mm plywood, but the dimensions can be adjusted for almost any thickness plywood).

Artist Makes Birds from Cardboard Packaging
Spring is sprung, da grass is riz, I wonder where dem boidies is? Well, actually, it’s the sweaty, 90º+ part of summer here at the moment, but after seeing these adorable papercraft birds, I couldn’t get that old poem out of my head.

UFO-shaped Chicken Coop Ready for Lift-off

UFO-shaped Chicken Coop Ready for Lift-off
I live in the city in Chicago, so I never figured I’d see a live chicken wandering around my neighborhood. But it’s something I’ve actually seen on occasion. I’m assuming some hipster is doing urban farming somewhere around here, and a chicken got out of their coop.

Zombie Flamingos (aka The Squawking Dead)
Halloween is going to be here before you know it, and that means It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown will be airing soon. In the leadup to that airing and all the kids out begging for free candy, it’s about time to decorate your house.

Birds in the Buff with Weapons: Armed Avians

Birds in the Buff with Weapons: Armed Avians
Look at these images. They are so weird. They are birds with human-like butts and toes with guns. It looks like some sort of deranged FPS lost its main characters. It’s almost like Howard the Duck decided to get some revenge for all those bad movie reviews.

Deer Supplement Their Vegetarian Diets with Birds!?
If you read our site much, you know we post stories about weird science stuff on occasion. Most of that stuff is cool and doesn’t creep me out at all, unless we are talking about robots that look like Hector from Saturn 3.

Ivanpah Solar Plant Accidentally Creates Death Ray that Kills Birds in Flight
Last week in the California desert, a $2.2 billion solar plant opened that creates electricity by harnessing solar energy.

Birds on Twitter: Real Birds are Tweeting Online (and in Real Life)
A baby girl named Hashtag. A fox that can answer calls and send text messages. And now birds that tweet? Now I’ve seen everything. Of course, these birds were only able to do so with the help of humans.

Let’s Go LEGO Bird Watching

Let’s Go LEGO Bird Watching
We’ve seen some LEGO Angry Birds in the past, and that was certainly geeky in an awesome way. Another LEGO fan has constructed some birds, and this time the birds aren’t angry at all. These birds are more realistic, sort of like sculpture, only made out of those  square bricks we all know and love.
