Now I can finally see the size difference between a dog and a wolf.
Wolves are so cool.
I want to have a dog with the size of it and that looks just like wolf.
Their undilluted phenotypes are majestic.
Even malamutes and huskies pale in comparison to the beauty of a real thing.

Nutty birds. Apparently they make pretty awful pets in a way. Hilarious and funny and sweet when they are young, but mental when they mature. Pretty violent too. Need constant stimulation and socialising to be somewhat manageable.

Good day. We are here to discuss how great hummingbirds are. I have come to know a whole pile of them since the lockdown, and I am here to tell you that they are altogether lovely. I had no idea their songs were so great.

Absolute mass does matter. Compared to other birds they still have a pittance, but they make the most of it.

Its actually been tried but they didn't survive.
Hummingbirds have specific and constant dietary needs. For most species, sugar water/nectar is simply fuel to hunt their main diet- small winged insects like gnats, mosquitoes and little beetles.
They burn an insane amount of calories for their size and will drink somewhere between 1/2 to their full weight a day in sugar water AND eat 1,000++ mosquitoes.
Cold weather is fatal to most because they simply don't have enough mass to retain heat.
They can survive cold snaps overnight in their native ranges by entering into a mini hibernation mode but without warm days not only does their health suffer but their primary food sources (flowers and insects) are not abundant enough.

I'm sure European summers can sustain them just fine, but hummingbirds are migratory. In the US the little hummers I see flitting about my feeder in New Hampshire will fly roughly two thousand miles to Florida, Mexico, Gautama, or even as far south as Costa Rica. They have food available everywhere along their route except for the hop over the Gulf of Mexico.
In Europe, where do they have to migrate? A bird in Germany could have food through the summer there, traveling south in the fall. They go through France, and get to Spain. Already the food is becoming very scarce. Spain is very arid and scrubby compared to say, South Carolina or Georgia in the US. Hungry, they jump over into Morocco and encounter a desert. The next arid scrub like what they came from is a shocking 1,300 miles away. They fly into the desert, and it consumes them. Our brave hummer never sees the promised land of Sengal or southern Mali.
It's not Europe which kills hummingbirds. It's Africa.

"Killer Whale" was a mistranslation when Europeans asked the Inuits what they were called.
The correct translation is "Whale Killer".

I guarantee that dog has been adopted since that happened. They probably did a gofundme for it too. He's probably living it up with a new family, a bunch of dog bros, and a whole lot of swag.

I think they do. I spent a lot of time feeding and bonding with some puppies when I visited grandpa's house. Came back 2 years later and noticed some dogs outside the fence looking at me expectedly, I didn't go up to them. Didn't realize until my cousin told me later they were the same dogs. Never saw them again.

If you don't want to touch it, just get a cup and a piece of paper. Walking it over to a flat surface by gently pushing on it, then put the cup and slide the paper under. Then you can just toss it where ever you want

Yet most people cannot provide for the basic needs of the birds. They will hoard 30 birds in a tiny aviary and feed them absolute garbage, and breed for fun to sell shitty bred birds to more shitty owners who will continue the cycle.
