Birds feeding fishes is a real thing

By Leonard Ho - Posted Aug 04, 2017 09:00 AM
There are a lot of really fascinating videos of birds (of all feathers) feeding pond fish. Why do birds do this? Some animal behaviorists hypothesize these birds might see fish mouth as baby bird mouths, so their parental instinct kicks in. Whatever the reason, it's really cute.

This black-headed cardinal is said to return to the pond up to six times a day just to feed the koi!

As if baby ducks aren't cute enough ...

Yup; a black swan feeding fish.  Check that off your bucket list.  Warning: Hideous electronic music!
