Snowy Sheathbill

Sometimes animals are so ugly, they become cute again. Walruses for instance. Another example is the Snowy Sheathbill. Pure white (ok, that’s kinda nice) birds with an obvious skin disease (have a look at the naked skin near the bill) who feed on bird dropping and look like a chicken… But still, somehow they appear cute… This one was a bit curious and came to have a look at those strange things nearby…
