While they are not suede, they will keep the little blue penguin's feet dry and infection-free. Elvis and 16 other little blues who arrived at the International Antarctic Centre in September have been given specially designed shoes after several penguins developed sore feet in their new home. Brought from Napier's Marineland to take centre stage at the Antarctic Centre's Penguin Encounter display, the penguins are "second-chance" birds. Many have disabilities due to injuries.
Antarctic Centre director Richard Benton said some of the penguins had developed sore feet, which had proved "tricky" to treat. Veterinarian Pauline Howard had suggested rubber shoes. Snugly tailored, with a springy sole, the shoes are available in kelp green or penguin blue - to complement any penguin tuxedo.
Photographed here is the moment a tiny but very angry *Kingbird hitched a piggyback ride on a red tail hawk. The feisty flyer began attacking the bird of prey after it ventured too near its nest. Pat Gaines, 41, captured the amazing moment at Bonny Lake park in Colorado, USA. 'I've never seen a hawk harassed so much. The Kingbird pecked at its head as the hawk flew away screaming,' she informed Will and Guy.
* The genus Tyrannus is a group of large insect-eating birds in the Tyrant flycatcher family Tyrannidae. The majority are named as Kingbirds. They prefer semi-open or open areas. These birds wait on an exposed perch and then catch insects in flight. They have long pointed wings and large broad bills. These birds tend to defend their breeding territories aggressively, often chasing away much larger birds as we can see from the story, above. The name of this genus means "tyrant".
Sam Seagull - Bird Short Story
A pilfering seagull has turned shoplifter by wandering into a store and helping himself to his favourite crisps. The fearless bird lies in wait every day and pounces at a corner shop in Aberdeen, Scotland, when the door opens. He sneaks in, grabs his spicy Doritos, then flies off with them in his beak and shares them with other birds.
The seagull, nicknamed Sam by staff and customers, has become so popular locals have started paying for his crisps.
Shop assistant Sriaram Nagarajan reported: 'At first I didn't believe a seagull was capable of stealing crisps. But I saw it with my own eyes and I was surprised. He's very good at it. He's becoming a bit of a celebrity. Seagulls are usually not that popular but Sam is a star because he's so funny.'

Amusing Alex, The Barman and The Ostrich
Alex walks in to Buck's Bar with an ostrich behind him, and as he sits down, Buck, the barman, comes over and takes their order.
Alex says, 'I'll have a beer,' and turns to the ostrich. 'What's yours?'

'Same for me,' says the ostrich.
'That will be £6.45,' says Buck. Once again the man pulls exact change out of his pocket and places it on the bar The bartender can't hold back his curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change out of your pocket every time?'
'Well,' answers Alex genially , 'several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I just put my hand in my pocket, and the right amount of money will always be there.'
'That's brilliant!' retorts the Buck, warming to the subject. 'Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live.'
'That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,' comments Alex.
The barman then asks, 'One other thing, sir, what's with the ostrich?'
Alex replies, 'Oh, my second wish was for a chick with long legs!'
Darnay Duck walks into a pub and orders a pint of lager and a ham sandwich. The landlord looks at him and exclaims, 'But you're a duck!'
'Your eyes work,' replies the Darnay Duck, wryly.
'Certainly,' agrees the landlord, 'sorry about that... it's just we don't get many ducks in this pub. What are you doing round this way?'
'I'm working on the building site across the road,' explains the duck.
The landlord watches, astounded, as Darnay Duck drinks his beer, eats his sandwich and leaves.
The duck visits regularly for two weeks. Then one day the circus comes to town. The owner of the circus comes into the pub and the landlord says to him, 'You're with the circus aren't you? I know this duck that would be just brilliant in your circus - he talks, drinks beer and everything.'
'Sounds incredible,' says the owner, 'get him to give me a call.'
So the next day when Darnay Duck comes into the pub the landlord says,
'Hey Mr Duck, I reckon I can line you up with a top job, paying really good
'At the circus.' Answers the landlord.
'That's right,' replies the landlord.
'That's right.' beams the landlord.
Darnay Duck looks confused. 'Why would they want a plasterer?'
Selection of Interesting and Amusing Bird Pictures
Flamingos usually lay just one large egg. It takes about a month for the chick to incubate. The chick's mother and father each take turns to incubate the egg. Just before they hatch the chick starts squawking, this is the signal for the parents to help by breaking the egg from the outside.
After about a week of feeding from its parents, the flamingo chick looks funny, but it's ready to walk. The young flamingo develops quickly and can swim before it leaves the nest, which is typically about a week after hatching.

Funny Ostrich Pictures
Pippa, a confused cockatoo at a wildlife sanctuary, has been protecting a bowl of chocolate eggs in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England, since she was taken outside and saw them on a table.
Her owner, Geoff Grewcock, said, 'She went straight over, climbed on the creme eggs and that was it. She thinks they're her eggs. Until she clicks they're not real eggs, we'll just leave her there.'
The 17-year-old cockatoo, who has been at the sanctuary for about four years, is expected to live until the age of 70 and has so much character it's unbelievable Will and Guy have discovered. Apparently she dislikes men and we learned of a tale where Pippa once bit the neck of a builder who, she thought, was threatening "her eggs". Mr Grewcock had to prise Pippa's beak off his neck.
