Naughty Parrots! Fiordland, New Zealand Cruise down this twisty highway, and you’ll spot mountains, lakes, and … parrots playing on a jungle gym? Bird experts created the playground just for local kea, a type of parrot that lives only in New Zealand. The feathered fliers can swing on an ocean buoy, make noise on metal triangles, and even knock each other off a seesaw. But it’s not just for fun—the jungle gym keeps the birds out of trouble.

weird weather

Haboob A haboob is a giant desert dust storm. The thick blanket of dust can swallow up a city, knock over power lines, and cause traffic accidents because of reduced visibility. Cover your mouth and nose and run for cover if a haboob comes your way. Red Sprite Red sprites are still a bit mysterious to scientists. They happen in the upper atmosphere, miles above thunderstorms that are ending. After much of the electric charge is removed from a storm through lightning strikes, these glowing streamers may appear. Red sprites are rarely seen from Earth Double Rainbow Light reflecting inside water droplets causes one rainbow, but it’s actually possible for light to be reflected more than once inside a raindrop. The rare secondary rainbow is formed above the first and is usually fainter—and the colors…
