Tough day at the nest? Rough commute in the sky? We know just the place where you can get your feathers out of a bunch.
Junco’s pub is now open for business in Newfoundland. Unlike other watering holes in the area though, this one has (literally) gone to the birds.
At Junco's, every night is wing night.

Elling Lien, who built the bar in his backyard, told the CBC he was inspired by a livestream in Norway, in which a birdfeeder was made to look like a cafe. One year’s worth of work later, and his creation is now complete with a Coke machine, tiny bar stools, little liquor bottles, a working TV, lights, posters and a dartboard.
The birds are free to come and go as they please: eating, drinking, flirting, fighting and belligerently kicking over bar stools. Thanks to a camera installed inside, anyone can check out what they’re up to.
Elling, meanwhile, has been busy documenting their travels closely, noting anything from regular customers, to blooming romances. The bar was actually named after its very first visitor.
“What’s interesting, ’cause it’s spring, they’re pairing off now. That one junco that visited, he’s got a buddy, he’s got a female that visits with him regularly now. Yeah, they’ve hooked up. It’s like a bar romance,” he told the public broadcaster.
