Meet Purple-Crowned Fairywren, The Bird With A Beautiful Purple Head

Birds are one of the species that never fail to amaze us with their beautiful colored feathers. A lot of them are so unique that make you fall in love with nature all over again when you see them. Among them is the purple crowned fairywren, which is a very distinctive bird because of its purple crown feature in the center of its head.

Unfortunately, the female birds don’t have the purple color feature, but both have a blue tail that goes in contrast with their brown plumage.

These birds are native to northern Australia. They can be found in the riparian habitat with dense vegetation, and they stay away from the urbanized habitats. Even though their number is decreasing, and they’re listed as endangered due to livestock grazing, fires, and invasive species.

Their diet varies from invertebrates to seeds.

They are not known to be very social, usually hang out only with their partners, however when it’s mating time, females will mate with other individuals despite having a male partner. They lay 2-3 eggs in the nest and incubate them.

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.
