Top Ten Weird Looking Birds That Looked Photoshopped
As beautiful as it can get. The King of Saxony Bird-of-paradise is a bird in the Bird of paradise family. Both the common name "King of Saxony" and the scientific specific name "alberti" were given to honour Albert of Saxony, whose wife gave her name to the Queen Carola's Bird of Paradise. It is the only member in the monotypic genus Pteridophora. It has different names in some different parts of the world. The bird is sometimes known as "Kisaba" by the natives of Papua New Guinea and Western New Guinea, as a human interpretation of the male's loud call. Truly beautiful.
#9 Luzon Bleeding-Heart
Now this is truly amazing. The Luzon Bleeding-heart is one of a number of species of ground dove in the genus Gallicolumba that are called "bleeding-hearts". They get this name from a splash of vivid red colour at the centre of their white breasts. Isn't this amazing? A reddish hue that extends down the belly furthers the illusion of blood having run down the bird's front.
#8 Long-Wattled Umbrellabird
This is nature's magic. The Long-wattled Umbrellabird is a bird belonging to the family Cotingidae. This species can be found in a relatively narrow belt along the Pacific slopes of the Choco of western Colombia and Ecuador. The best part about them is there overhanging crest on the head.
#7 Ribbon-Tailed Astrapia
The Ribbon-tailed Astrapia also known as Shaw Mayer's Astrapia, Astrapia mayeri is a medium-sized, up to 32 cm long (without including the tail of the male, which can be over 1 metre), velvet black bird of paradise. The tail itself is the best feature. The male has an iridescent olive green and bronze plumage, and is adorned with ornamental "ball" plume above its bill and two extremely long, ribbon-like white tail feathers. The female is a brown bird with an iridescent head.
#6 Standard-Winged Nightjar
Indeed one of the most weird looking birds in the world. The Standard-winged Nightjar (Macrodipteryx longipennis) is a bird in the nightjar family. It is a resident breeder in Africa from Senegal east to Ethiopia. It is found in dry savannah habitats, with some scrub. The adult male has a bizarre wing ornament during the breeding season, with a broad central flight feather on each wing elongated to 38 cm, much longer than the bird's body. 20 cm or more of this is bare shaft. Truly incredible!
The Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex) also known as Whalehead or Shoe-billed Stork, is a very large stork-like bird. It derives its name from its massive shoe-shaped bill. It looks incredible. Some authorities now reclassify it with the Pelecaniformes. The adult is mainly grey while the juveniles are browner. It lives in tropical east Africa in large swamps from Sudan to Zambia.
#4 White Peacocks
#4 The White Peacock (Anartia jatrophae) is a species of butterfly found in the southeastern United States, Central America, and throughout much of South America. This is simply, natures beauty. The males of the species display a unique territorial behavior, in which they stake out a territory typically 15 meters in diameter that contains larval host plants. They perch in this area and aggressively protect it from other insects and other male white peacocks.
#3 Three-Wattled Bellbird
The Three-wattled Bellbird (Procnias tricarunculatus) is a Central American migratory bird of the cotinga family. In this list, this is one of the most beautiful birds. One of four species of bellbird that live in Central and South America, the Three-wattled Bellbird is between 25 cm (9.8 in) and 30 cm (12 in) long. The body, tail, and wings of the male are uniformly chestnut-brown; its head, neck, and upper breast are white; and it has a black eye-ring, eye-stripe, and bill. Its name comes from the three worm-like wattles of skin that hang from the base of the bill. Nature at its best.
#2 Resplendent Quetzal
This is a very colourful bird. The Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno) is a bird in the trogon family. It is found from southern Mexico to western Panama (unlike the other quetzals of the genus Pharomachrus, which are found in South America and eastern Panama). It is well known for its colorful plumage. Its natural colours enhance its beauty.
#1 Andean Cock-of-the-Rock
You look at it once and you will keep looking at it. The Andean Cock-of-the-rock (Rupicola peruvianus) is a medium-sized passerine bird of the Cotinga family native to Andean cloud forests in South America. The plural is Andean Cocks-of-the-rock. It is widely regarded as the national bird of Peru. It has four subspecies and its closest relative is the Guianan Cock-of-the-rock. You have to say that Peru is the house of the most weird but beautiful looking bird in the world.
