Hey uh thanks mate!

A wild raven perches himself on the fence of a human’s farm and squawks for help because he has three porcupine quills stuck in the side of his face. The kind humans who find him attempt to take the quills out, but not without some “lip” from the raven.
It looks young to me, maybe in its first year. and I’d bet ANYTHING that there’s only one reason that a raven would end up with its face near the back end of a porcupine… Damn tail pulling corvids! Well, it’s learned its lesson now. Smart critter getting help from humans. You can tell he knows what they’re doing, it hurts and he complains loudly but he doesn’t fly away or defend himself. Corvids are so smart it blows my mind.
He’s definitely a juvenile - the inside of his mouth is still pink.
When people talk about “cumulative culture” and corvids passing down knowledge to their young, this is what they mean. It could very well be that another bird in the flock has had positive contact with humans, even this particular human, as their facial recognition skills are remarkable.
Clever baby not only knew how to ask for help, but also understood that the acute pain he was feeling was going to benefit him in the end.
This is exactly how I act whenever I need a doctor for anything that involves needles.
i love the bird side of tumblr wow
the fact that there are animals who can see colors that i cant which means that there are colors that exist that it is literally impossible for me to envision is such fucking bullshit that i wanna rip open a couch and eat it
do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general
robots running on very low charge acting a lot like sleepy humans
tired stubborn cranky robots insisting that they’re fine despite their low battery alert going off
robots suddenly trailing off and automatically entering sleep mode mid-sentence when they absolutely cannot resist any longer (∪‿∪✿)
And their generators only run when they sleep so it’s like a cute humming snore.
those otps where one lives a normal lifespan and the other will live for centuries
