This Amazing Cartoon-Like Bird Features a Striking Black-and-Yellow Appearance

Most of us are not bird experts, and sometimes we struggle to differentiate between similar-looking bird species. However, once you lay eyes on these extraordinary small birds, with their feathers resembling a cartoonish combination of black and yellow, you’ll never forget or confuse them with any other bird species in the world.

Let’s introduce you to the black-and-yellow broadbill (Eurylaimus ochromalus), a member of the broadbill family of birds, which are known for their unique characteristics. These broadbills stand out without a doubt with their striking outfit of black, white, yellow, and pink feathers. Additionally, they have vibrant blue beaks that are wide and have a deep base, which is a distinctive trait among broadbills.

The black-and-yellow broadbill can be spotted in countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore, and Brunei. This bird’s primary diet consists of insects, and it searches for food in the middle to upper sections of forests found in lowland and hilly areas. It often moves around in groups of different bird species and catches insects by quickly flying out from a perch.

The black-and-yellow broadbill’s song is surprisingly loud, consisting of a sequence of high-pitched coos. As the song progresses, the coos become faster and higher in pitch, eventually transforming into a frenzy of loud whistles. Additionally, these birds often produce a call that sounds similar to the call of a jay, which can be described as a sharp “jeer!”

The breeding season of the black-and-yellow broadbill begins when the dry season arrives. Both male and female birds have been seen engaging in wing displays as part of their mating rituals. They work together to construct nests, which are usually found near open areas or over streams in safe locations without any obstructions. However, it’s worth noting that these nests can sometimes be invaded and used by cuckoos, which are known to parasitize them.

According to the IUCN Red List, this species is categorized as “near-threatened.” Unfortunately, its population is decreasing at a relatively fast pace primarily because of habitat loss resulting from activities such as logging, conversion of land for other purposes, and wildfires.

A Dog Heroically Stays Inside a Burning House, Refusing to Leave as He Protects Four Small Friends That Are Also Trapped Inside

Who says dogs don’t like cats? People always think that dogs and cats are ‘natural’ enemies and the story below will prove us wrong. This story might be one of the most unusual rescue stories ever.

A Jack Russell mix dog named Leo risked his life to protect and save four newborn kittens from house fire in Melbourne, Australia. When firefighters were trying to prevent the flames spread in the house, they discovered a dog still inside the home. Firefighters had to dodge fallen power lines to reach the dog.

Leo was found lying unconscious on the floor. They lifted him up and were in total shock of what they found beneath him! The dog had placed his body over kittens to keep them safe until help could arrive. Miraculously, the four kittens were unharmed, thanks to Leo. Firefighters rushed the pets outside where Leo was given oxygen. He is now feeling well.
