Dog Sleeping Patterns and Behaviors

According to Casper Mattress Company, dogs have distinct sleeping patterns and behaviors. Maybe a Dog Bed can make the difference? Here is how they list out: Dreaming: Yes, dogs can dream too! While it’s difficult to uncover exactly what dogs dream about, we know the brain processes their events of the day during sleep. So we can assume they’re dreaming of what happened during the day — like a walk around the block or chasing a squirrel. Twitching: Just like humans, dogs may twitch in their sl...

Hail New Zealand's Bird of the Year - The Green Parrot

He’s never gonna stop talking about this. The kākāpō, a flightless, nocturnal parrot, has been named New Zealand’s Bird of the Year in its annual online competition. It’s the first bird in the contest’s 15-year history to win twice, beloved as the heaviest and longest-lived parrot species on Earth. The competition was marred by vote rigging in favor of the little spotted kiwi, but authorities spotted the fraud and disqualified the suspect votes. While the win doesn’t carry a cash prize, it’s hop...

Robot Wolves Keep Bears Out of Japanese Town

Well, this is a fine howl do you do. After an uptick in bear sightings in the area this year and two fatal attacks in October — possibly because deforestation is leading bears in search of food into contact with humans — the small Japanese city of Takikawa bought two large wolf robots to scare off predators. Living wolves have been extinct in Japan for at least 100 years. When the four-foot wolf’s motion sensor is tripped, it howls as its eyes glow red and head swivels. Bear sightings have cease...

Perched in a backyard in the city of Charlottesville, it is the passion project of librarian Rebecca Flowers and woodworker ...

Barn Owl Siblings Help Each Other

Wonderful article in the website on the sibling behavior of barn owls: By Pratik Pawar     If ever there were a competition to rank sibling relationships in the animal kingdom, barn owls would be close to the top. That’s because elder barn owlets will sometimes give away their meal to their younger siblings. Such cooperative behavior has been reported in adult nonhuman primates and birds, but rarely among young. “I don’t know any other species where you c...

Dogs Are Being Trained to Sniff Out Coronavirus Cases

  As reported by the Washington Post, it makes sense that if dogs have the ability to sniff the presence of certain diseases, they could be trained to sniff out the coronavirus. As some states move to reopen after weeks of shutdowns, infectious-disease experts say the prevention of future coronavirus outbreaks will depend on scaling up testing and identifying asymptomatic carriers. Now, eight Labrador retrievers — and their powerful noses — have been enlisted to help. The dogs are the...

We post this as a resource for pets and pet owners:   May is National Pet Month, and it is important to recognize the large intersection of domestic violence and animal abuse, as nearly half of domestic violence will not leave their pet behind. Children especially can be traumatized by leaving an animal behind because they have witnessed the threats or harm to their beloved pets.

Rescuing Rex, The Red-Tailed Hawk

If you're a hawk who's planning to crash into a window, One Police Plaza in Manhattan is not the worst place to do it. Officers from the elite NYPD Special Operations Emergency Service Unit were quickly on the scene April 14 to pick up this juvenile red-tailed hawk, who was stranded on a traffic median by an injured wing. At the Wild Bird Fund, our team determined that the hawk, now named Rex, had a fractured ulna in his left wing. They not only splinted the wing, but they gave him a stylish mat...

And to educate New Yorkers about the rich diversity of the city’s wildlife and how to help it thrive. But that description is not totally complete. The center also rescues and rehabilitates domestic birds li...
