Pied Falconets
The Pied Falconet, scientifically named Microhierax melanoleucos (Falconidae), is a species native to Bangladesh, China, India, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, and Viet Nam.
Members of the genus Microhierax are the smallest of falcons. M. melanoleucos is only 18-20 cm in size.
Pied Falconets feed mostly on insects, but also on small birds to the size of a thrush, and small ground mammals and reptiles. Insects and birds are taken in flight.

Norway has just emerged as a challenger for Japan’s title as Masters of Awesome Cuteness. These photos were taken on the set of “Piip-Show”, a live reality tv show following the lives of a cast comprised of wild birds and the occasional squirrel. Conceived by Norwegian freelance photographer Magne Klann, the show takes place on a set which is an outdoor bird feeder modeled after Java, a well-known coffee shop in Oslo, Norway.

“Different personalities meet inside the bar. Among others a short tempered nuthatch, a blue tit with the memory of a gold fish, a happy-go-lucky great tit, and a depressed bullfinch. Like in any other bar there is bickering, petty theft, fighting and attempts at romance”.

We can’t help but try to pair these animals with various cast members from Seinfeld.

Billed as the very first reality show for birds, the “Piip-Show" is a three-month-long project that’s being broadcast live on the Norwegian broadcasting network NRK.

OH TUMBLR have I ever mentioned my insane love for pigeons? Because I fucking LOVE PIGEONS. They are beautiful and clever and tough and have so much personality. I want one so bad, they are just the best. Lucky for me I live in Pigeon Central, USA.
This is some kind of Roller, which are totally nuts. Look at that! Nobody knows why rollers roll, but I like to think “because they can” is a pretty good answer.
