A Face Only a Mother Could Love

 

Ok, I really thought I had only one more pond photo...

......and then I looked outside.

Right in front of my door by the pond stood this fellow...

Come on...

You have to admit it.

This is NOT a pretty bird!

Ok.. the bird is pretty... but the face..????

This is a face only a mother could love!! 

(damn! I know the feeling well!)

And no, once again, I don't know what the name of this bird is...


Addendum:  My sister-in-law wrote me that this is a Woodstork! (yep, he looks "woody" alright!)

Looks like a vulture married a stork, and this is the baby they had together.

I don't know, Pat... I think he looks kind of cute... Even with the face...

Ah, well, no accounting for taste, is there? ^-~

Wow - definitely only a mother could love that face (or a serious birder!)

I have to say - you have much better neighbors now - when they take flight it isn't from the police!
