This “whale pwns bird” video has been making ripples in the Twitterverse:

It makes me think, though, imagine if the birds had to file a report to their Avian Medical Insurance company. “We was flying along looking for somewhere to have a kip for the night, when all of a sudden, WHAM! I was walloped from below. Some great stinkin’ flipper came out an’ whacked me”.
During questioning the whale denied knowledge of any involvement, but did admit to being in the area. It denied breech of the peace (indeed it denied having done any kind of breeching in the last 3 months). It was finally released on bail.
Anyone guess the identity of the bird? We’ve narrowed it down a bit (hint: it’s not a chipping sparrow).
