July 3, 2007: Bouyantly-billed bird



This one's just goofy.

According to Nat Geo, this rare smiling bird is "the rare recurve-billed bushbird", spotted recently in Colombia after a 40-year absence. Its curved-upward beak gives him the illusion of a smile, but we prefer to think he's just happy to see us.

This is in fact the first time this bird has been photographed! So it's a really rare beast.

UT -- good job maintaining the alliteration.

Tomorrow, we need a patriotic, alliterative IotD... I'm sure UT won't disappoint us...! . . . "Fantastic Frickin' Fireworks!"? "Human Hotdogs"?

The IotD is worldwide so it would be inappropriate to use it to celebrate the holiday.

plus iotd images usually circulate a day or two after an event

That is a horrible picture..

It looks like a 5 year old hacked it together in Paint. The eye looks hokey. The glare off the head. The glinting beak. The blurry nondescript background that could be anybody's back yard.

I think we're being scammed.

I read this one to quick and my strange brain of mush saw, "In Colombia after 40 years of substance abuse." and I immediately thought, "Yeah I would be smiling too."
