We’re going to make your hearts soar and make you so chipper, you’ll be flying above your everyday problems. Our nature and animal-loving team here at Bored Panda has searched the wilds of the internet to bring you the very best, funniest, and featheriest bird memes that you’ll want to share with all of your pals.
As you’re scrolling down into this lovely aviary kingdom that we’ve created for you, give your fave birds a sweet boop on the beak with a good ol’ upvote. Let us know which memes you enjoyed the most. And if you’ve got a bird, birb, borb, or even a chonky blorb at home as a pet, let us know how that’s working out for you.
Something that I secretly dream about is making a meme or two that will go viral and take over the internet. Obviously, things are far easier if you’ve got a photogenic pet to work with. Say, a dashing-looking bird that’s bound to catch the attention of everyone scrolling through their social media feeds.
Then, you just need a few catchy words or phrases to round your meme out, and boom—you’ve got an instant meme sensation. But taking that perfect picture… now that’s a challenge.
We might love birds a lot, but looking at them on the screen and out in the wild is a vastly different experience. And photographing them is a whole other ball game entirely. I wanted to learn a bit about how we should behave when we find wild birds, so I reached out to the friendly team at ‘Help Wildlife,’ a British charity-run advice website. I also had a lovely chat about taking pictures of birds with professional pet photographer Karen Weiler who was kind enough to explain how to get the perfect shot.
A representative of the ‘Help Wildlife’ team told Bored Panda that it’s best to enjoy birds from a distance. “They offer a lot with their lovely looks and gorgeous songs so we can get a lot of pleasure from them without interacting directly,” they said. Read on for both interviews to get some spot-on advice about feeding wildlife, which bird species might be vulnerable, what we can all do to pitch in and help our local wild birds flourish, and how we can take the best possible photos of animals.
