so you guys may have seen this bird already, but I'm sure it's new for somebody. I know I've never seen it before today. Ha ha ha, it looks so fake but it's real.

They're related, Sir Hat. These are like South American frogmouths, which are found in Asia/Australia.

What a cute and silly bird :D And it's not a cryptid; it's real, which is awesome.

That it does. Saw one only last night looking at me from the bush outside my house. Tame ones you can pat like a dog.

It's really quite cute. It looks kind of permanently surprised.

I take it the ones in the first pics are female, judging by the size of mouth?

Ahaha, it's so stupid and dorky I want twenty of them.

It's so funny that things like this actually exist. It looks like a bird muppet.

If I was walking through the woods & came up on that crazy sum' a b**ch, I'd pull off my best ninja stance & karate chop him in the throat.

Forget guard dogs, I'll scare buglers away with one of these. Best home security system ever.
