A seagull lands on a sailor’s hat and takes a sip of his coffee. The sneaky bird perches on the head of Norwegian tour guide Ole Martin Dahle then dips its beak into his mug for a morning caffeine fix. The seagull was photographed by 55 year old professional photographer Andrew Astbury, whilst on a week-long trip in the county of Nord-Trondelag in Norway.

Birds killed per year by energy source. Via U.S. News (trigger warning, written by Alan Neuhauser).
Wind and solar kills about 300k per year. Coal, nearly 8 million. Power lines kill about 12 and 64 million birds per year.
The biggest killer of birds? House cats kill 3 billion birds per year. That’s about 375 of those black bars for coal placed end to end.
