Bird of the Week Challenge: 13th July - beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Happy Monday everyone. Hope those of you on the east coast are staying as warm as you can. Anyone get snow?

I cant remember if I have set this challenge before, I think I may have.... but anyway, lets see photos of those, how shall we say it, less photogenic birds wink The ones that only a mother could love.

Still super cute, but baby Coots are a little unusual looking compared to some imo.laugh

Hi all. 

I had trouble finding a suitable Australian bird for this challenge - all of my photos had cute looking little birds, not ugly ones! Need to dig up a brush turkey photo or chanel-billed cuckoo or something!!

Anyway I found this one from a trip to Africa - the Ground Hornbill seems to fit the theme this week. 

Good luck everyone!

The Brolga is not good looking in my books

Not the best looking Cocky in the world but very popular with everyone that visited Bramwell station.

This young Dusky Moorhen is cute but odd looking at the same time

Cute as chicks, but rather unusual looking as adults, Masked Lapwing.

I don't think Ibis are considered to be cute even as chicks......

Pretty much the only, not so pretty bird shot I have. Baby Wagtails only one day old, from earlier this year in my backyard. Mum loved them thats for sure.

OK, not a bird photo but since you asked about the snow Holly, yes we got some.
