Seeking interesting videos about birds and pirates for sickbed viewing

My stepdad is ill and has some non-fun things coming up (surgery and chemo). I'd like to send him light, interesting videos or picture-heavy articles about his interests, mostly exotic birds and pirates. Can you suggest some?

He's interested in and very knowledgable about exotic birds -- he used to run a pet shop, breeds budgies and other birds, and the best times I've had with him have been walking around zoos, where he knows something about seemingly every species. He likes watching history and "How is it made?"-type programmes as well, and his other big interest is pirates: he built this
and has an extravagant pirate outfit of his own. He also loves a bit of controversy or argument!
I'm hoping to send him a stream of fun, interesting things to take his mind off things, but he's much more a video person and I'm more of a words person, so I need your help, hivemind. Pictures and picture-rich articles are OK too. He's all set for Facebook communities and moderates several.
Thanks in advance!
