Most DANGEROUS Birds On Earth

The scariest, most dangerous birds in the world! From the brutal spurs of graceful waterfowl to the bone-dropping tactics of vultures
#10 Giant Petrel
Often referred to as Stinkers or Gluttons, the scavenging bird species near Antarctica have a nasty track record. Opportunistic to a fault, the Giant Petrel is known for not only feeding on the carcasses of deceased penguins and seals, but also laying an aggressive, boisterous claim to their food. Assuming a hostile stance with wings outstretched and eyes focused on any competitors, the Petrel scares away any that approach. Feeding on both land and sea, this carrion hunter also consumes fish, krill, and squid. This has caused them to become a pest among fishing vessels as the Petrel will follow these boats and pick at any meat remnants they can find. But just because they don’t often feed on live prey doesn’t mean they can’t threaten them. The giant Petrel has been seen assaulting emperor penguins, small seals, and even albatross, either blatantly attacking them or drowning them.
#9 Mute Swan
Renowned for its majestic beauty throughout its native region of Eurasia, the Mute Swan isn’t just another elegant waterfowl. Not one for small talk, this bird is often identified by its unique beak pattern and strange techniques of communication. Adults will use a mix of grunts, whistles and snorts to communicate with their young or threatening predators. As a swimming bird, they can typically swim away from any danger, but when push comes to shove, the mute swan shoves hard. Equipped with a large snapping bill and bony spurs hidden in their wings, they thrash their foes with brutal intensity. This is only compounded by their inherent territorial nature. One incident in 2012 demonstrated just how brutal they can be when a kayaker came under attack at a Chicago condominium’s pond. He was actually looking after the local mute swan population when a bothered swan knocked him out of his boat and proceeded to flail against him until he drowned.

    Where have I heard this voice before? Oh yeah! Now I remember: In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The A-Team.

    imagine being such a pussy to be kicked/scared out of your canoe and then proceed to drown just because an overgrown duck is near you. Also the herring gull? they only fly at you to chase you at most. And the magpies, come on, they can be agressive yes, maybe peck you a few times but 99% of the time they just fly close to you to scare you away. The people that wrote this list are just lil bitches. The only thing that is really dangerous are the osstrich and cassowary. Maybe that eagle but they are so hard to find and rare that you don't really have a real chance to get killed by them. also that story about the loon, I call bull fucking shit, only thing I can find is a dead eagle.

    I stopped watching at Lammergeier.. What utter and total BS.. A bird at the bottom of the food chain famously feeds on marrow from bones left by other predictors by carrying the bones high into the sky and dropping them onto the rocks below to smash them open to get at the marrow inside. This forms 85-90% of their diet.. the rest being small rodents, birds and reptiles.. This video claims they kill small children and sheep.. Talk about fake news.. No wonder our children are so dumb today with crap like this for them to watch...

    This list is ridiculous. Very few predatory birds and no birds notorious for spreading disease. What a strange angle. There are so many deadly birds, especially to humans and I'm pretty sure none of these birds would want to face a shoebill or most Hawks or eagles. Sea gulls, pigeons and chickens kill more humans. There are problem birds that make planes crash these above birds are deadliest to who and what?

  40. Ambergris

    AmbergrisMonth ago

    Terrible list. The Lammergeier is absolutely not dangerous to about any living creature. It's a shy and easily scared scavenger, far from what its reputation suggests. Like, it's "dangerous" because it drops bones, probably the most inert animal tissue? And the Swan, Loon, Buzzard, Gull and Magpie might have had isolated incidents with humans, but that doesn't mean that they are dangerous. I mean, I could probably be smothered by a chicken.

  41. Cyrus d'Vulture

    Cyrus d'VultureMonth ago

    "lammergeier" is not a great term for the bearded vulture because vultures get an unnecessary bad rep and "lammergeier" or "lamb thief" only serves to perpetuate that rep. Bearded vultures are not lamb thieves.

    That is not an australian magpie, it is the eurasian magpie and it's not even the same family of birds. Eurasian magpies are corvids, while australian ones are Artamidae. Also, the eurasian magpie is not aggressive, it is friendly and interested in human activity instead.

    Jesus was born to a virgin, turned water to wine, taught, healed the sick, raised the dead, casted out demons, walked on water, and calmed the storm, among many other things. He was killed, and three days later He rose from the dead. Forty days later He ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father. He is returning very soon, but before He does, Satan, the devil, is coming to pretend to be Jesus. Satan is an angel, and he will have certain supernatural powers with which to try to fool everyone. He will, for example, be able to make fire come down from heaven in the sight of men. He will only be on earth a short time before the real King of Kings, Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, returns. When the real Jesus comes we will all be transformed into our spiritual bodies at the same moment. Jesus came to offer forgiveness of sins and eternal life to anyone who believes and calls on His precious name. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; - Romans 3:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. - Romans 6:23 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. - John 3:16-18 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. - Psalm 55:22
