The Immaturist's Guide to Birdwatching

Swallow
(Hirundininae)

The Swallow is a favorite among males in the bird kingdom (as compared to the Swallow's less desirable cousins "The Spitter" and "The South African Cantwejustmakeout").

Tit
(Parus caeruleus)

One of the best locations to observe Tits in their natural environment is during their annual migration to Mardi Gras. (They are easily coaxed out of their nests with shiny beads.)

These birds typically can be seen travelling in pairs, with younger members being prized for their perkiness.

Fairy Penguin
(Eudyptula minor)

Fairy Penguins keep warm thanks to overlapped feathers which are covered in a layer of light oil. If that doesn't work they might throw on a tasteful boa or maybe some chaps.

Booby
(Papasula)

The Booby is widely considered to be a "family-friendly" version of the Tit.

Screamer
(Anhimidae)

This is a bird that definitely likes to have a good time. But may not be a suitable choice for mates that still live at home with their parents.

Flowerpecker
(Dicaeum concolor)

This rare bird is known for communicating in a distinct series of chirps.

Once means "Hi!"
Twice means "Do you like my wings?"
And three times means
"I want to put my weiner in a Hibiscus."

The Flowerpecker is considered to be a weirdo by other birds.
