The roundup of the remaining wild horses on the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge is underway. These were America’s War Horses - their ancestors fought in battles as cavalry remounts through World War I. Sadly, this piece of American history is being eradicated. Unfortunately, these horses, who live on Fish and Wildlife Service land are not protected by the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burros Act, which pertains to mustangs and burros living on Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service land. We’ll be tracking the fate of these horses and will keep you posted on this sad, sad situation. Photo of Sheldon horses by Mike Lorden

There’s an ancient saying in Japan, that life is like walking from one side of infinite darkness to another, on a bridge of dreams. They say that we’re all crossing the bridge of dreams together. That there’s nothing more than that. Just us, on the bridge of dreams.

Crow: CROW YES!

It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.

science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing

Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.

Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:

THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE

Reblogging myself because I’m so overwhelmed that this (elderly) shot of mine got such great feedback.
Thank you and I can tell you, Lena (she’d fondly called Puppengesicht/dollface by her owners) is not just an incredibly talented Quarter Horse (Reigning) but also the sweetest horse imaginable.
