It's funny to think about how so many people look at hummingbirds and just think they're cute and adorable harmless little birds, but the Aztec looked at them and saw how down to fight they were and went and named their god of war and human sacrifice "Huitzilopochli" which roughly translates to "Hummingbird on the left."
Watching hummingbird dogfighting was my favorite thing when I was a kid. I'd literally do it for hours. Lots of fun if you have binoculars. But those fuckers are aggressive, even to the girls (though its mostly the boys flexing their shits). Also, if you've never heard what a hummingbird sounds like, please look it up, its kind of incredible.
Another owlcat, this time a barn owl and owl finch mix
#maybe also some ragdoll if you wanna guess cat breeds too #but i didn't focus much on that #went with another style #i wanted to ink #i just didn't want to ink /this/ #so i got kinda painty with it without going too serious #owlcat #owl #cat #cats #birds #tags are dumb and i hate them #owlcats #i cant remember if I pluralized half this shit for my own tagging system oops54 notes
[When you and your best friend finally got tired of putting up with your rival's bullshit gossip and just fucking put poison in their wine. They weren't even a good archenemy. Their schemes were sloppy, their insults weak, their fashion sense abysmal. You aren't taking another one if they don't stroll into your house in thigh high leather high heeled boots to tell you that you have the moral integrity of a milk soaked cupcake.]
This is my patented solution to keeping my idiot child from jumping up on the bird cage while the birds are covered up. Please send good vibes. I need this to work.
She's not only disturbing the birds, but causing their perches to drop (sometimes with the birds on them) and their water to slosh out of it's dish. Not to mention this keeps me up at night. so I'm big hoping two pillow cases are all it takes to disuade her because she's a cat which means you can't exactly tell her no or discipline her. Especially not in he middle of the night or when you're not home.

Haven't drawn her in a hot minute, but every time the weather gets cold I imagine her in a wintery getup that somehow allows for wings. She fucking hates the cold.
Kush, my cockatiel: -gets spooked, flies around the room, lands somewhere strange- YELLING. IM YELLING. DONT LIKE.
Me: Please stop. You flew yourself over there, why don't you fly yourself back?
Kush: EVERYTHING IS SCARY AND I DONT LIKE IT AND I AM PARALYZED BY MY INCAPACITY TO SOLVE MY OWN PROBLEMS.
Me: You're not gonna stop until I go pick you, are you?
Kush: NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST.
The pigeon: -eating literal dirt-
The bird boys are moving into together tonight (for various reasons that I can explain later). I'm not expecting any problems with them, but wish them luck as they get used to the new cage layout~
I may post pics later. I'm a bit proud of finding something I hope will work for both of their different mobility situations.
