Quarantine Cafe: Now With 80% More Birds Edition

A magpie eats rotted -- fermented -- apples. Then it stumbles around, smash-faced drunk.

A big bunch of very small ducklings try to follow their mom up some concrete steps in a park. Stick with it! This should be a motivational poster.

Ducklings are too afraid to jump off a quay to follow their mother into the water. They need some encouragement.

Abused pittie is scheduled to be euthanized but gets saved by a shelter and foster dad.

Very abused pittie -- used in dog-fighting, covered in scars -- learns to trust humans and other dogs.

Hand-raising an abandoned baby starling until it's a full-grown bird.

A giant (really giant) manta ray who has gotten caught in a fishing net and washed up on shore, with barely any life left in it. But one man is determined to free it from the net and get it back into the water.

Baby gosling is rejected by her mother, because it was born premature and is weak. So a man becomes its mommy. It's cute when he tries to teach it to fly. Warning: there's a second tough circumstance for the gosling, but it turns out okay. But maybe don't watch if you get too upset about animals being hurt.

This poor furry bird fell out of a tree.

People could still enter/exit the building thanks to an entryway which was connected to a special curved sidewalk.

Bell had planned to demolish it but that would've interrupted phone service for a big chunk of Indiana, which they didn't want to do.

They lifted the whole building with steam-powered hydraulic lifts, then set it on enormous pine logs. It was moved via hand-operated jacks, which pushed it over the logs 3/8" at a time. Once the building rolled far enough forward, the last log would be moved to the front.

The rotation plan was conceived & executed by famous architect Kurt Vonnegut Sr (father of the famous author).

The building was demolished in 1963.
