Vampire Finch

Vampire Finch ---enjoy!

I love Finches but these birds from the Galapagos learned
to drink the blood of other birds thus killing them.
They are , as a result, given the name of Vampire Finches.

Watch on you tube

How incredibly interesting! I am sure all the Twlight fans would love to read this bit of information. You have to love the wonders of nature.
Have a lovely Monday, cheers!

You know, I do believe and I am not surprised. But I usually associate them to eating dead flesh not being so brave so as to eat a healthy, living animal.This means they would eat a sleeping baby too and are to be put in the cat category as not to be trusted around babies.Cats can eat a baby's brain, being attracted to the pulse in the head, where the bones are not fused yet.
