Video of the week: Drone captures iceberg collapse

Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Nature on Friday, June 19, 2015

Video of the week: bird hatching in hand

Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Wildlife on Friday, June 12, 2015

A professor at a Swedish university has witnessed an incredible thing, from the palm of his hand. While holding an egg, a baby Blue Tit bird emerged from the shell, tweeting its arrival.

The wee beaked bird will grow up to have a colourful mix of blue, yellow, white and green plumage. In winter, flocks of tits will cooperate to search for food, according to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. A garden with four or five blue tits at a feeder at any one time may be feeding 20 or more.

Posted by Sabrina Doyle in Wildlife on Friday, May 22, 2015

What better way to start the weekend than with a newborn moose? On the side of a road in Anchorage, Alaska, a mother moose recently gave birth to twins, and onlookers got to watch the wee ones take their first steps. Correction: try to take their first steps. The one young moose has bit of adorable trouble staying upright.

Ah, moose. When will they stop being awesome (answer: never).
