Video: Hummingbirds may be small, but their energy consumption is huge. Learn how they do this. Okay, so going back to my obsessions. Photo credit: Don Powers. Twenty-four hours later we would try capturing the same hummingbirds to collect another pee sample. How cool is that?
Do weird, random questions about bird pee and poop ever wander through your head that might make you feel like an oddball if you asked them out loud? For example, do birds pee? Do they fart? Why is their poop white? If so, then you will be happy to know that there are plenty of other people out there asking Google the same questions.
You, me, cats, dogs, horses, rabbits, deer, elephants and lots of other animals all make brown poop most of the time, anyway. What makes birds veer from the standard color palette and produce black and white poo? Instead of pooping and peeing separately, they basically do it all in one weird mess.
Every once in a while, a bird will poop on you. Or, at least, has a lot of white in it. But no need to experience this not-actually-lucky event.
