Are there birds that actually scare you? Posted on June 12, 2022 by Anonymous Are there birds that actually scare you?
surprised nobody has mentioned these
I know, ducks freak me out.
Geese are just memes. You'd have to be a limp wristed pansy to actually fear them
Geese are assholes, but you can easily beat the shit out of them. However, Canada geese are protected, so beating the shit out of one is illegal, even though the rat birds are everywhere.
My own rehomed conure can be scary at times when it walks at me with malicious intent.
I am afraid of the seagulls and pelicans that will literally swoop at my bait mid air as a cast... hooking those fuckers is such a pain.
one flew under my line while the lure was travelling through the air! he got it caught and then flew straight out to sea until the end of the line where he somehow wasnt hooked, but still stuck.. I had to reel in that hysterical bird and untangle it. made a few hundred bucks selling mackerel straight from the water at the pier that day, though
Pelicans have disturbing eating habits
I'm glad those fuckers are too small to eat humans.
They look like they feel ENTITLED to get you into their belly and get all butthurt when you decide to not get swallowed by them.
>give me the child
The patron bird of the vore fetish.
Birds would look/be a lot more threatening to me if they had teeth. But the fact that they don't makes them not too scary imo
Confirmed never bitten by a parrot.
this one doesn't need teeth. 1 kick and you'll see how your abdomen fall out like cold spaghetti.
>not using mom's spaghetti in your post
Their beaks are one giant dagger stabbing and crushing you like a wrench also
Even a budgie bite Hurst more than a cat
A lot of birds spook me honestly, geese and ostriches scare the shitfuck out of me and when I was a kid I’d cry in fear if I got too close to pigeons
I like owls and cute park birds (ie: humming birds) though.
I wouldn't say "scare" exactly but some birds have eyes that creep me out.
Its hard to explain exactly but when you get a sense of an alien intelligence it just feels a little uncomfortable.
I also get a little skittish if they're close to my face, but I'm generally neurotic over that kind of thing.
Fuck birds man.
only some ratites are big enough for that and even then you have to be gentle
Daily reminder that rraAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA rrAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Thank you for listening.
On occasion the swallows that live on my property will swoop down right in front of me and I will go, "woah." It really looks like they're having a lot of fun and it's cool seeing the ballsy younger birds learn the ropes.
Secretary Birds. Animals being hot is NOT normal.
Seagulls. Used to live in a city and my god man the seagulls. To make matters worse the cunts were no doubt loaded up on drugs from the vomit they would eat off the pavement.
I once saw a seagull absolutely fucking destroy a pigeon, after an hour all that remained was the pigeons spinal column.
Damn bastards always leave rat carcasses on my beach and annoy all the anglers
I used to follow the daily lives of two pidgeons nesting in the tree outside my office window until one day a seagull divebombed one of them and tore it to shreads before leaving. Didnt even take a bite of it, and no gulls live around here. Just a random fly-by murder
the other pidgeon would still come back to the tree and sit on the same branch where they would always wait for eachother. its a couple of years later and two are nesting in the tree again. hope its him or her having moved on with a new mate
needs a dropped skirt on those feet, kek
parrots because they'll shred your ear with their beak just for a giggle, and ostriches for obvious reasons. hawks and eagles not so much, because i know not to piss them off or corner them
These things should not be pets.
They're fine as pets but only for those who are serious about caring for them. They're an animal I very much agree with background checks and home tours before adopting.
They are bad pets even for people who are serious about caring for them. And the people who are serious about caring for them are mentally ill, or their job revolves around caring for them.
>background checks and home tours before adopting
What do you mean?
there are owls in the woods here that regularly dive and claw at peoples heads. they can really tear up a scalp real good, and you have no idea they are coming for you until the pain comes. I have only seen them sitting docile on road signs and they are very cute and dont scare me.
Used to be scared of swans, but I have no respect for them any longer as I am an adult and would just throw them back to sea, or actually just not piss them off in the first place
This picture reminds me that I used to have a childhood fear of larger birds. I guess I used to think they were some kind of demon.
Chicken. Neighbors chicken scared the crap out of me twice.
maybe if terror birds were still alive and were just aggressive all the time. Birds do a pretty good job of broadcasting their emotions so you'll almost never get hurt around them if you just read their behaviors.
Potoo freak me out.
I like owls, but admittedly it is spooky hearing loud owl calls in the night. Especially when you hear it once and you want to get back to sleep, but you don't know when it's going to call again.
Also that front-facing shoebill gif.
Shoebills always look like animatronics when they move. Its unnerving.
Animatronics are cute and fun, don't let zoomer memes ruin them for you
Its uncanny valley, even before FNAF shittery made it cool with shitty jumpscares. Realistic animatronics cause a very different fear reaction than "haha loud noise pirate fox suddenly in your face"
this gif looks like terrible CGI, amazing
All of them. I literally have a phobia of those motherfuckers
how? birds are the cutest
My grandparents had a huge African grey parrot that attacked me when I was younger, that shit traumatized me. And ever since then, birds have always been dicks to me, attacking me and whatnot. I think they can sort of sense that I’m uncomfortable around them, and that must rile them up or something
Birds can sense your anxiety and think it means you're going to attack them. Most just fly away but if you're near their nest, they'll attack you to get you to back off. Are you aussie by any chance? I know the magpies down there can be utter assholes.
Only city fags and children are scared of magpies, willie wagtails are the real shit!
They don't do a small swoop mate the flat out maul you like a pit bull!
Dogs, cats, cars or people they don't care, they're the living embodiment of little man syndrome and are out to prove their dick size!
Yeah, that makes sense. I'm not an Aussie, but I've heard about magpies and am eternally grateful I don't have the deal with all the horrifying avians from the land down under. The worst I have to deal with on a regular basis are turkey vultures and getting mocked for not wanting to go duck hunting since I can't even deal with touching the dead ones. That, and smaller birds like robins or bluejays flying into me and attacking me
Had a pair of ravens nesting near my house and it was pretty scary when one started dive bombing on me when i was walking past the nest
>Not offering tribute when you pass
>Not gaining the pairs trust and their children's trust
>Not building a small loyal army of ravens
You missed out.
he killed millions...
i mean. It looks like it could poke your eyes out so yes.
look at the pure malice behind those eyes
It's just violence it's not malice
he looks disappointed
Birds are capable of aggression but not malice
Dogs are smart enough for malice. Birds definitely are.
some birds might be, and dogs definitely are not.
Well no wonder they lost.
It's a ratite, it's fucking retarded
Someone hasn't been around Parrots.
smart bird species are most definitely capable of malice
I told my boyfriend in order to marry me he has to break a wild ones neck with his bare hands, cook it and present it to my feet.
We'll see how that goes.
He should break your neck instead.
I'd be alright with that
who said anything about being a woman?
Even if he did that you would still not be a woman
Tits or gtfo
I keep reading about how these birds are 6+ foot tall but I've met them in person and they're short as hell.
Never forget, never forgive
That's a cassowary, not an emu
they're pretty spooky
The virgin round eyed ape rightfully fears the Chad Hunter Eyed Avian.
It's not malice. That's cold indifference.
That's a look that says "You are already dead"
That's a look that says "huh, I wonder if I should shop around for a better ISP" while you're being stomped to death.
You're just gonna be another log for that bird to chuck out.
Street pigeons. Pretty scary that 60% of them carry lethal diseases transmittable to humans.
They don't you hypochondriac
Only if you're Russian.
gonna need a source for this one
