People love transforming their faces into cute dogs or cats with snapchat - but you know what's better than a human with an animal filter - a bird with no filter. GIGGAG has compiled a list of hilarious snapchats of birds caught on camera just chilling and doing their thing, sometimes in some very odd places.
From unlikely feathery friendships between birds and other household pets to birds in their natural habitats to birds trying to fit in with different winged breeds this delightful list is sure to bring a smile to the face of bird owners, aficionados and admirers.

We might think of parrots as the masters of mimicry but in fact ravens kept in captivity are just as likely to pick up human speech and sounds if not better than parrots. In the wild ravens sometimes are known to imitate other animals or mimic predators so they can attract them to carcasses that they can't break open on their own.
This one reminds me an episode of that entertainment/documentary show about animals I catch on TV every now and then. There was a cat who was raised by a hen, then the cat grew up and had her own babies. Guess what the cat did? No, she didn't eat the hen, she left her babies for the hen to take care of, while she is wandering around free, as if she never kids in the first place.
Love this, so sweet
Ostriches may be known for their giant eggs, but little is said about their giant eyes - which are the largest eyes set on any land animal. That's right their eyes are the size of a billiard ball, which is 2in (5cm) in diameter, measured front to back, from the center of the cornea to the retina - five times bigger than the human eye.

Have you ever been eating outside and had your meal ruined by an invasion of ants crawling on your food or even worse on you! Well if you were a cardinal this would be a welcome scenario. This bird species likes to cover their feathers or crushed and living ants. While scientists still aren't sure the reason behind this anting, their best guess is that the birds use the formic acid secreted during this practice to help get rid of lice and other parasites.
A melted hamster by the look of him...

Letting out a fart in any circumstance is definitely impolite and embarrassing, but especially at the dinner table. Well, if you want to have a classy dinner don't invite the worm-eating Bassian thrush, they find their prey hiding under leaves by farting directly on them. The gas moves the leaf-litter and dislodges the worms - yum.
if only this would happen to me every morning with my coffee cup
So glad you managed to save the bird
Have you ever seen your friend yawn and then tried to turn away before you 'caught the yawn?' Well this behavior of contagious yawning is seen in very few creatures other than humans, such as dogs, chimps and lab rats. Budgerigars, or budgies, a common parakeet, are the only bird species/non-mammal scientists have observed so far that also exhibit this behavior. So if you have a parakeet try not to yawn around them!
the other two are so done with his/her Sh*t
I love the mock pout that all baby and fledgling birds seem to have. Makes them look like real-life Angry Birds
The other duck isn't having any of this.
Oh, what a perfect fit
Kitty looks very confused and concerned
Looks like he's wearing a jacket
Thank you. May you have much joy watching them.
Love how different they are bright blue boys and soft grey girls. This is a beauty of a photo
I wouldn't be able to resist and had given in and gave him the phone case...
been there. lol
He really does look like there are constellations in his eyes..
Probably wondering who the handsome bird in the picture is.

This is how I like animals kept, on farms, running free, not in slaughterhouses, crammed up in tiny cages. I like how chickens look like elderly ladies trying to see neighbour's baby.
I laughed longer at that caption than any pun deserves. I am not proud.
I don't know if I want to pet it or bite it
Omg what if it is twice as many tomorrow?
I hope she ducks when cars come
