Isn't that the 5-legged long-nosed Frankbird? Kind of in a dark phase, I think -- definitely not the mating plumage, though. Must have been eating recently, because you can see the shiny coverings over his eyes.

What an incredibly handsome specimen!! If all birdies looked like this awesome example, we could have continued to post our shots over on DPR.... :lol: :lol:

Seriously, I've never seen a more intelligent, good looking, athletic, virile example of animal magnetism in my life.... :?

Bwahahahahahaha.... :p

Oh the poor thing, it looks injured. Three of its legs have withered and it has some big black tumour sticking out of its head. As much as I hate to recommend it, I think the best thing is to put it out of its misery.

Aint it sad how nature sometimes goes so wrong?

:D

Which are the legs the white spindly things or the sturdy black ones? This bird is obviously skulking away from the crowd and is looking back to insure it is not followed. I think it is a loner bird although Frankenbird has some appeal as well.
