Watch young David Attenborough try to piece together a massive broken egg shell (given to him by locals) in this 1961 clip from Zoo Quest to Madagascar: The Elephant Bird Egg.

The Elephant Bird was a large, ostrich or emu-like, flightless bird that lived on the island of Madagascar until its extinction, likely in the 17th or 18th century. How tall was it? From Wikipedia

Aepyornis, believed to have been more than 3 m (10 ft) tall and weighing close to 400 kg (880 lb), was at the time the world’s largest bird. Remains of Aepyornis adults and eggs have been found; in some cases the eggs have a circumference of more than 1 m (3 ft 3 in) and a length up to 34 cm (13 in). The egg volume is about 160 times greater than that of a chicken egg.

Below, Sir David visits the Elephant Bird’s skeleton in a museum in the capital city of Antananarivo:

Revisiting Juan Fontanive's mechanical, looping flipbooks: Vivarium. From the artist’s bio: 

Juan Fontanive makes films without using light. Often recycling the mechanical parts of found clocks and pushbikes as the portable containers of his ‘animations’. His interest lies in the beauty of sequential and repetitive movement… Pages fall in neat layers in the manner of a paper fountain, somewhere between film and sculpture - there is no ‘screen’ as such.

We’ve enjoyed Fontanive’s kinetic sculptures before… remember these?

Also in the archives: videos with more birds, more butterflies, more kinetic sculptures, and more flip books, one of our favorite DIY activities. Make your own!

From PBS’ Ireland’s Wild River, this is how the vibrantly-colored, diving Kingfisher hunts for fish on the River Shannon.

Our favorite bird videos include this frenetic feeding frenzy off the South African coast, releasing an eagle back into the wilds of Kansas, and Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s stunning Birds of Paradise project.

Watch this Kiwi chick hatch from an egg at Auckland Zoo. This is the season’s second hatchling for BNZ Operation Nest Egg, a program that collects the eggs of endangered and critically endangered wild kiwi. Hatched and protected until they are big enough to return to their native populations, this process has increased their chance of surviving to adulthood to 65%, up from just 5% in the wild.

Watch more videos of birds, zoos, and eggs, including this very different kind of hatching video: the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect.

Watch the flight paths of starlings as they make computer-assisted trails across the sky above the Seekonk Speedway in Massachusetts. Artist Dennis Hlynsky filmed them (and otherswith a Lumix GH2 and then used After Effects to make their paths more visible from their own visually-echoed image. A time-lapse of sorts…

I’m a tall, slender, socially awkward man… so naturally I relate to tall and skinny birds like storks, flamingos and todays featured animal- ostriches.

From the BBC documentary Life, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, behold the “dance” of the Clark’s Grebes. The kid likes the end: a wee bit like synchronized swimming; a lot like walking on water.
