It won't be zombies or aliens that take over the world. Our bet is on these 5 birds that are secretly on the quest for world domination.

5) Zebra Finches

You gotta' admit, zebra finches are cute. And they make the cutest little beeping noises. Who's a cute overlord, zebra finch? You are!
How they will take over the world: By complete accident.

There’s one thing that zebra finches (Poephila guttata) like to do: breed. If a few get loose, their numbers would grow exponentially within a few years because they’ll do their best to breed with other finch species. So not only will we be swarmed by an army of zebra finches, we’ll also have to deal with their cute, super-hybrid offspring. To be fair, we might be able to peacefully co-exist with the zebra finches and their hybrid offspring, but they will outnumber us a billion to one.

So, tell us ... How will your pet bird take over the world?

Oh, how funny and yet educational. No, I don't really believe they would be taking over the world, but they surely make it a more enjoyable place. Well written and I love the sense of humor!
