Fishing is all about timing as Norman Dreger learned from one crafty Bald Eagle. He was just about to reel a fish in when the eagle swooped in and stole it from right under him—while it was still on his line! Talk about missing out on the catch of the day.
This is Charlie, the sweater wearing parrot.
Charlie was a neglected pet who had plucked out his feathers, according to the BBC.
The charity’s co-ordinator, Rebecca Blagg, began knitting the eclectus parrot sweaters after the U.K. bird charity Safehaven rescued the poor bird in 2007.
“He was the worst we’d ever seen. He was literally like an oven-ready chicken, he was that bald,” she told the BBC. “He was so cold without his feathers, he was shivering.”
Since being nursed back to health, Bagg has said Charlie has become so accustomed to his multitude of sweaters (He has ones in green, blue and peach and brown ones) that he becomes quite angry and agitated when he’s not wearing one.
“Knitting’s not my forte and I’ve never knitted for a parrot before,” she said. “But he seemed to like it.”
Oh, Aiden. You are too cute. But that doesn’t stop me from imagining how incredibly embarrassed you’ll be when your parents start playing this video for all your friends at every event that celebrates you. After they play this wonderful video of you feeding your pet dog the same way Alicia Silverstone (she’s an actress most notable for her role in Clueless) feeds her baby— that is the momma bird, baby bird way— enough times that’ll you’ll eventually get over the initial feeling of dread and join in in the “Oh, damn. Look how cute and silly I was” conversations. Because we’ve all been there — in the metaphorical way, not in the “I fed my dog like that, too” way. For that, you are on your own.

This chatty cat has a new strategy. Instead of vengefully staring out the window and trying to pounce on unsuspecting birds when they fly near him, he’s created a unique language in an attempt to make friends with the birds. Perhaps this is a well thought out strategy? He’s probably saying “Here birdy-birdies. If you fly near me I’ll give you food and protection.” Then when they do, POUNCE.
