Medic Feeding Baby Birds

Does the Hippocratic oath extend to sweet little baby birds? Even if it doesn’t, it’s no surprise that a military doctor would take some time out of their day to help keep these little songbirds happy and healthy. This press photo shows that even during war time soldiers were able to take a moment to get away from the atrocities of war and focus on something other than death.

Who knows how many birds this soldier worked on or how long these little fellas hung out with him, but it looks like they’re comfortable enough with him that they’ve been here for a while.

Jacob Shelton


Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
