The boat-billed heron (Cochlearius cochlearius) is a strange-looking bird from the mangrove swamps of Central and South America. Not only does he have an unusually fat bill but his head feathers resemble dark hair.
Charlie Hickey took this photo in Costa Rica and noticed immediately that the bird looks like he’s wearing a bad toupee. Click here to read whose toupee Charlie’s reminded of.
