As someone who’s afraid of birds, I was hesitant to take a look at a video about a mutant parakeet sent in by reader Jennifer Wadsworth, but after I got a look at Whipper’s endearing mutant face, all my fears were set aside. This bird was actually abandoned at birth by its mother because of how he looked (guess she didn’t like totally cute birds). Cue tears, right? Never fear though, in a fairy-tale turn of events, Whipper ended up living the good life with an owner in New Zealand who always has plenty of bird feed on hand. So, go ahead and take a gander at only the most adorable bird I’ve ever seen before. It’s gonna make your day.
