[Bird and Moon’s turkey vulture facts comic]
For someone who has probably already seen this, but here you are anyway, You know who you are!
Since Tumblr no longer allows one to correct sources, I will point out that this comic is by an independent artist and comes from Bird and Moon.
Ok, my blog definitely needs some black robins today.
Uhhh, so black robins have basically the best conservation story ever. In 1980 there were only five of these birds left, with only one fertile female. That’s the little lady in the bottom picture, Old Blue. …Who I have a tattoo of… because of reasons. The following reasons, as a matter of fact.
Anyway, so this guy named Don Merton who is basically my hero stepped in when everyone else threw in the towel, and he was like, “Well let’s try something.” And they tried something, and it worked. Now there’s a population of a couple of hundred of them, and since they live exclusively on these tiny islands off New Zealand, that’s a fairly decent population.
When every environmental story I see is bad, I try to think of black robins, because maybe we can’t save everything, but we can at least try.
I really want this post to get up to 9,000 notes. 9,000 people who know about black robins.
Do it, Tumblr.
I thought that hummingbird was going to -ahem- start mating with the one feeding, but nope, it just wanted some room to eat
