This Pink-headed Warbler is Such a Sweet Little Bird

When it comes to colors, each of them is unique. But it seems that pink steals our eye sometimes. People think that pink is a female color and it’s true that it has garnered something of a feminine reputation over the years, but people have been wearing pink across all walks of life for a very long time.

In nature, where plants and animals can manifest the sorts of pinky shades I really gravitate towards. Like the pinks found in the feathers of the lovely pink-headed warblers of Guatemala and a small portion of Mexico. In bright daylight, they reveal their rich, cool pinks that often lean towards purple.


Pink-headed Warbler (Cardellina versicolor) in the Guatemalan highlands.

In overcast or duller lighting, the hues are muted and reminiscent to the browner, yellower pinks of a bygone era.

It is tough to spot them. They only live at high elevations, particularly the pine-oak and evergreen cloud forests of Guatemala. That range extends into the highlands of the Mexican state of Chiapas, but they are considered uncommon there.

Since their range is so specific, they are considered a threatened species.

Thankfully, there are still tens of thousands of flitting about, but population levels are on the decline due to habitat loss and conservationists are working to stem the problem before it becomes a crisis.

Sea Turtles Get Rescued From Unnecessary Suffering

As you may know, barnacles are some sort of crustacean that usually fix themselves to rigid surfaces as rocks or even ships. Yet, sometimes they can attach to the sea turtles shell. Although one single barnacle doesn’t particularly cause any sort of damage, if the barnacles number found on a turtle’s shell is too high, that could turn into real struggles for the hopeless marine creature. Swimming difficulties, infections and even poor eyesight can be the result of these sticky crustacean.

And today we will focus on a random act of kindness, where a heroic guy from Sri Lanka, decides to help some poor sea turtles to dispose of a burden that could eventually cost their lives. The helpful man, called Chika Boy is great fond of wildlife and always willing to step up for the hopeless animals. This time, he removes the barnacles from the turtle’s shell!

So, in his latest YouTube video, Chika Boy shows us the easiest way to help a sea turtle to get rid of those unpleasant guests. You can see how many barnacles attached themselves to this tiny sea turtle. Fortunately, this nice guy removes them all using a special tool. Then, with its shell clean, Chika Boy releases the turtle back in the ocean.
