… and dead ugly!

The Noisy Friarbird has to be one of the ugliest (and noisiest) birds in Australia. Its bare head is said to help it feed on nectar but what the bump on its bill is for is a mystery!

True it's ugly, the bump could be its mating season? Our Turkey Vultures are just as ugly!

In pelicans that bump shows up on breeding males, could be something like that. Great, great shots, but you're right, very ugly!
