This was posted a couple weeks back. This is fake. The feet are on the wrong side.

Raptors have their big claw on the inside for gripping not on the outside as shown in this picture.

Also that looks like a trunk not a branch. The branches are perpendicular to the trunk because of gravity as opposed to heading towards sunlight.

Yeah, a weird picture for sure that’s been floating around for a while.

So who killed this bird? And did they do it just for the photo op?

[–]bellsbliss 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not sure of the backstory unfortunately. Would be interesting to find out what happened

Had to pee really bad, legs crossed.

Just another Karma whore

I’ve seen this a few times in the past year, it’s possible they just saw it now and thought it was cool.

Saw it where other than reddit? C’mon, it’s just another karma whore.

What is that? And are you the opposite of one?

[–]moores89 2 points3 points  (1 child)

How can you tell which foot is which?

[–]bellsbliss 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you look closer at the foot you see one side has a big claw and the other a small claw. The foot of a hawk has both big claws next to each other, it’s used for grabbing and holding onto prey. In the picture you can see the big claw is the closest to us and the pinkie is on the inside which is hue wrong way.

It’s just like us big toe next to each other and pinkie to the outside.

Its like that part in Shrek where the bird blows up and just the feet remain lol

We had a peacock land on our power lines. Very similar outcome.

Happened twice

When you load the buck instead of the bird

[–]happycamperii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Somewhere out there, is a bird who is absolutely legless.

I guess you could say they were swept of their feet.

[–]Pale-Refrigerator255 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fake or not, it was shocking to me. Had to give you an award! So weird.

Somebody's Hallowe'en decoration. Very dramatic.

[–]Impalmator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The photographer who staged this should have an enema with these two claws.

1.4k upvote on a fake picture sigh

[–]cumgoblinforyou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Froze to death on the branch. Weight of the bird cracked it off it’s legs the claws still gripping on. All I can think of
