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.
The largest fire that British Columbia has seen so far this year has finally been 100% contained. This aerial video documents the Little Bobtail Lake fire, which started around May 9 and raged about 70 kilometres southwest of Prince George, causing area evacuations.

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.

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